Meet UnReal ARTists Gallery Owner Paulette Perlman
Paulette graduated from Cal State Northridge University, majoring in Printmaking and Silkscreen. A versatile artist, she has been ahead of her time. She has always emphasized using recycled materials in her pieces, using whatever resources and mediums she could access to create her images. Another artist gave me the name she loves the most, Artist of Whimsey.
She went from printmaking to illustration, to painting while she traveled, doing murals, portraits, and festivals to support herself in her nomadic ways until she discovered mermaids. Or perhaps mermaids discovered her.. and a marketing tool (and way of life), "Mermaids Don't Cook", was born!
Paulette's great adventure that took her 10,000 miles that first summer and she still participates in art car events, festivals and private portrait parties for clients.
