About

Welcome to Bear Tails Illustration, home of artist and illustrator Paula Hickman. 

Paula lives in Norfolk (UK) with her husband (her biggest critic, yet her biggest fan), their two children and three crazy rescue dogs.

Paula produces artwork using traditional methods (pencil, pastels and paint on paper) combined with digital collage and mixed media.

Paula is passionate about creating art and also about recycling old unwanted items. She therefore incorporates the two together, sourcing second-hand materials from charity shops, which then form the basis of her mixed media artwork. She shares an insight into the creation of her pictures on her Facebook page (please follow the link from this website). In addition, all books are printed on paper sourced from sustainable forestry.

The illustration above is from a book called: "Have you Seen?" written by Paul Hickman and is available to purchase through the shop on this website.
