|About the Artist
|Welcome, my name is Paula Chinowith and I am the owner and decorative
artist for Paula's Cottage Charm. My business is located in Victoria, Texas
which is about 100 miles south of Houston. I currently work from home
which is wonderful because it allows me to be with my family and still do
what I love most....PAINT!
Forr me, my first love has always been home decorating. From painting
walls with faux finishes to wallpapering and stenciling. I've pretty much tried
it all and being able to watch my favorite channel which of course is HGTV,
I'm inspired everyday with new ideas and techniques. One morning while
watching a decorating show I came across a segment with Priscilla Hauser.
She was painting the most beautiful pink roses and she made it look oh so
easy. I was intrigued so I decided to purchase a video and few painting
books and began to teach myself to paint . Well let me just say it wasn't as
easy as she made it look, but that didn't matter because I was hooked.
It's been 10 years and I still to this day paint on just about every surface that
I can get my hands on! Some of the items I offer on my website are new,
some are trash to treasure finds. What I enjoy most, I think, is giving a new
life to something that's been discarded and turning that unique find into a
beautiful one of a kind hand painted home accent.
Prior to 2005, which is when I began my website business, I painted
primarily for clients, friends and for local craft shows in our area. Thanks to
the Internet, I'm now able to sell my products through out the United States.
So I hope you enjoy your visit and that you get the chance to come back
often to see what new items I've added.
