Paula Haymond is a mixed media sculptor who works with wood, metal, resin and stones to create 3-D objects of art. Her works incorporate imagination, whimsy, enhanced by color, lace piercing and surface texturing. As a sculptor, Haymond is always looking for new materials to be used in her structures which spark the curiosity of others to explore those materials and designs closer. Paula uses a wide variety of power tools, hand tools and micro machines to create her subjects.
