Contemporary Abstract Artist 
Pagosa Springs, CO
Paula Jo Miller is a contemporary abstract artist living in beautiful Pagosa Springs, CO. Formerly a nonprofit consultant, she retired in Pagosa to pursue her passion for painting and teaching. 
Paula Jo comes from a long line of remarkable female artists. The finest was her Mother who took her first painting lesson at age 60. That courage inspired Paula Jo to create her series of interactive art classes where both kids and adults can learn abstract techniques and work with a variety of painting styles, tools and textures - all in a judgment free space.​

Paula Jo exhibits in solo and group shows around the country, often benefitting charitable organizations for which she's passionate. Her work hangs in galleries, businesses and in the homes of private collectors. She's a founding board member and Secretary/Treasurer of the Pagosa Springs Arts Council, as well as Beyond Words, International. She serves on the advisory board for Dog Lodge Sanctuary in Houston, Texas. And, she volunteers with numerous community organizations, including Humane Society of Pagosa Springs, Rise Above Violence, Rock the Vote, Seeds of Learning, and others.

This summer (2019), Paula and five other women will volunteer to teach a variety of healing arts at a Syrian refugee camp located near Patras, Greece. The team will spend up to six weeks working with women and children displaced by the Syrian crisis.
