In addition, Paula Swisher that it was her mother, who was an avid nature lover and took Paula’s siblings and her on nature walks. She taught them the names of all the birds, trees and plants around them. And that appreciation for nature has stayed with her. “During the recession I was struggling to scrape together enough freelance design projects. Wanting to draw but needing to focus my time on seeking freelance work I made a deal with myself. In particular, that I could only draw if it was with non-art materials”.
