About Paula Hendricks

She now manages a residential apartment building in the Tenderloin Heights in San Francisco while writing and designing books.

"My art reveals to me the world I see internally, often unconsciously. I am interested in desire and longing; what has been lost, left behind; what is just out of reach, out of frame, nearby; what is right in front of my face, but not seen clearly until I create the artistic image. I love discovering the mystery in the everyday.

"My time spent in cities by water, the high desert, and mythic sacred space inform my work. I am interested in energy and spirit.

"These pieces were written during my years in Santa Fe and Corrales, New Mexico. Now that' I'm gone from the high desert 5 years now, I can let them go."
