Paula Roland draws on over 35 years of professional experience in helping you realize your artistic goals. Paula began her journey with encaustic monotypes in the late 1990s, quickly becoming the “go-to” expert in this medium. Through her art, teaching and creation of the Roland HOTbox, she elevated the international profile of encaustic monotypes. For over 25 years, she has been a leading practitioner and instructor of encaustic on paper and panel. Paula exhibits and teaches encaustic painting as well as monotypes.
Roland's teaching experience includes teaching and curriculum development in colleges, museum education, and at nearly every level of art education.
Paula’s interest in broadening the scope of encaustic printmaking extended the process to include large scale monotypes and scrolls up to 35' in length; installation and translucent back-lit paper works; mixed mediums and monotypes; heated drawing; video projection on prints; and prints layered with encaustic or collage.
Paula Roland has an MFA in Painting and Sculpture from the University of New Orleans, a BA from Dominican College, and Grad level education courses from Louisiana State University.
