paula schultz


Direct yet conceptual. Provocative and engaging. Design & illustration for brands, publications, and people.

Paula Schultz is an American illustrator, artist, and designer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. When she’s not designing websites and print materials, she can be found creating drawings using ink and paper. Her work is often texture-heavy, built with contour lines, cross-hatching, and stippling. She is inspired by nature, the dream realm, and the occult and enjoys exploring the spaces between science fiction, fantasy, and psychedelia through imagery.

Paula works from her home studio in Oakland, CA and has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts & Technology from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.
