? Alumna Paula Wittner paintings are on exhibition at the Alumna Paula Wittner paintings are on exhibition at the Exhibition brochure:
Influenced by classical art, Arizona artist Paula Wittner uses humor and whimsy in her paintings to reference moments and characters in her life.
This body of work embodies the time she spent with her parents at the end of their lives and interprets universal themes like family, aging and death.

Paula Wittner:
I have always loved paintings, having seen them from an early age as a frequent visitor to The National Gallery of Art. At the outset of my career, my most immediate inspiration came from the painters of the Italian Renaissance. Combining that with childhood memories and my love of the Arizona landscape, I paint to entertain myself and others. I paint to illuminate our shared experience, and to hopefully add beauty to the world.
