About Paula

Urzica’s still life subjects feature upscale goods that are as meticulous as her own work. Inspired by the sweet stuff, her dazzling renditions of perfume bottles, boutique storefronts, and tempting macarons are truly delectable treats for the eye. After discovering her passion for hyperrealism, she taught herself how to render with incredible detail as her passion for vibrant, true-to-life color developed naturally.

Her technique is based on careful observation and a keen attention to detail, which she achieves by building up layers of color slowly and methodically. The result is paintings that look good enough to eat!

Urzica’s work has been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions, and her paintings are held in private collections around the world. Her work has been described as “lifelike,” “exquisite,” and “mouth-watering.” We think her paintings are simply delicious!


Place & Paints

Urzica is currently based in the Cotswolds, UK, where she collects and catalogs her favorite paints and pastels. She enjoys long walks among nature and paints every day.
