I'm Paula - a New Zealand artist currently living in Scotland.

Primarily, I've been a 2D illustrator/ 3D games artist, but since 2019 I have been making my own self-published zines and mini-comics and I'm eager to take a deeper dive in to the comics and zine scene (especially self-published works!). I've not tabled with any of these zines/mini-comics yet, but I would love to have a chance to share what I've made and become involved in the community in a bigger way!

Below is my first Risograph printed zine that I created at a riso-workshop, which was a 16 page illustrated zine about quirky New Zealand birds, combining humour and illustration:


Sample from "Cool  Birds of NZ"

After creating my first zine, I was inspired to continue exploring the medium further.

My work covers quite a wide range of styles and themes- I'm most drawn to creating humorous, illustrative and personal work and 

sharing beauty, humour and sadness in a way that connects with others.


I spent a while last year travelling, which meant I didn't have easy access to a risograph machine, so instead I created a range of tiny zines with the originals using a variety of materials that I had on hand (gouache, ink, pencil, biro etc.).

Below are a few more examples of original zines that I've created:


Sample from "The Daily Routine" (gouache)

Sample from "Miniatures" (tri-colour ball point pen)


Sample from "Miles" (ink and prisma-colour red pencil)

I'm currently in the process of creating a longer form comic surrounding the themes of self-acceptance, loneliness and learning to belong as well as finishing editing 3 other mini-zines (of a similar form to the examples above!), plus a collated range of illustrations that were created during Inktober last year (shown below!)

It would be really great to be able to debut a lot of my work at Thought Bubble this year, and to be able to share my passion with others that feel the same way. Thanks for your time and consideration!
