PaulaPaula Manning-Lewis has been a professional artist since she was 21, when she decided to pursue a career as an artist so she could stay home with her kids. Now that her three sons are grown, she has more time to devote to her passion.

She lives to be creative, it is her passion. Whether she’s painting on canvas, vinyl records, or recycling beat-up guitars; making drawings for her next coloring book, creating designs for fine art needlepoint, or creating functional pieces in fabric on a sewing machine. Art is her purpose; spreading love, joy and peace is her goal, and living her dream of making a living with her art is non-negotiable. Art isn’t only something she does, it is a spiritual expression from the deepest part of her soul. The art Paula creates is inspired by her Divine Source through daily meditation. She is constantly aware of her intuition and enjoys trying out new forms of creative expression.

PaulaukewebIn addition to her visual and functional art, Paula is a singer in the group Sunlight with her husband, Aaron Lewis. Together they also own Chroma Studios, an Albuquerque business and community where musicians and artists rent private studio spaces in a professional working environment. One of their biggest joys is to encourage and mentor other artists and musicians to follow their dreams.
