Being both a painter and an illustrator has given Paula Wiggins an opportunity to live in many different worlds. She has worked with publishers and art directors to create art for magazines, books, posters, calendars, and CD covers. For 7 years she had a stock illustration site "TheSpiritSource.com", that provided images from a large group of talented artists for the publishing trade.

But her first love is painting, although "painting" may not be enough of a word to describe the building up of a canvas with paper, found objects, paint, charcoal, more paint, and varnish. Paula received a Bachelor's of Fine Art from the University of Cincinnati and continued to learn by attending other schools and workshops, such as: the Art Academy of Cincinnati, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA
