Hyacinth PaulVisual Arts, Mixed Media & Fiber
Dr. Hyacinth Paul is a retired scientist and professor who started her career as an artist later in life. Her art works are both abstract and realistic; mostly done in oil’s, acrylics, and mixed media. Her paintings are very colorful because she believes color sparks synesthesia and involuntarily evokes feelings of joy. Her mixed media work is done in fiber and textiles from India. Sculptures made out of Recycled Saree Fabric are a new passion of hers and she is trying to tell the stories of the immigrant Indian women and their contributions in most every field in Dayton, OH. She feels that these stories need to be told to educate the community of their contributions.
She started by completing over 58 works in the 58th year of her life four years ago. She has over thirty-five solo/group exhibitions. She has entered juried shows as of September 2019 and was accepted into a few and walked away with a first place and an honorable mention. She currently showcases her work at Front Street Gallery, has a gallery representation in Dayton, and also a significant online presence.
She was awarded a grant to study Plein Aire painting at Provence and Barcelona by the Montgomery County Arts and Cultural District. More recently she became an Artist in Residence at the Trotwood-Madison City Schools supported by TeachArtsOhio grants from the Ohio Arts Council. Hyacinth curated a few exhibitions and art for sale and sold artworks of her peers as well as her own. She continues to educate through her talks and art classes to a varied section of society both young and old. She is a strong advocate for the Arts and Mental Health through her extensive reach of speaking engagements and educating every chance she gets.
