Fashion, Fine Art and Music - A visual representation of intelligence, vulnerability, and action.
- Paula Jewell -
In 2014, Paula Jewell founded a community organization called "ARTS: A Roadmap to Success" that allowed her to teach individuals from all walks of life about the importance of exploring their emotional intelligence through art. She uses her ability to engage people as a tool to get others interested in discussions about art and its relevance in our everyday lives.
Jewell attended the Savannah College of Art and Design for three years majoring in Fashion Design and minoring in Painting before making a move to New York to start her fashion career. Jewell immediately began work for Bibhu Mohapatra as apart of the design team for the Fall 2020 collection. From there, doors quickly opened allowing Jewell to learn from Prabal Gurung, one of the industry's most influential designers. Her work for Gurung prepared her to launch her own design career. From hand painted fabric prints to lively portraits, she renders her interpretation of beauty and transcendence. Jewell aspires to have a profession creating fabric prints, mixed media portraits and clothing that bridge the gap between fine art and fashion. Her art is a labour of love, with months of dedication spent on each work of art to ensure the highest level of craftsmanship.
Jewel Carter's goal is to not only to spark conversation about the significant, long term effects of artistic expression but to prove further the argument that anyone can find a creative voice. It is through fashion, painting, drawing and music that Jewell shares her most vulnerable, empowering emotions. It is her goal to reach individuals from all walks of life and share the tools necessary to develop emotional intellgence, self awareness and self love.
