Self-proclaimed creative diva Paula Nelson-Hart dreams of 48 hour days, endless access to eclectic power tools, and the perfect pair of jeans. Studying at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles launched Paula's passion for clothing design, leading her to continue her education at Brigham Young University. Her right brained antics run the gamut and include: wearable art, costume design for Marie Osmond Doll Collection, and artistic creations in collaboration with her daughters.
Paula is currently working side-by-side with Emmy Award winning designer from Dancing with the Stars, Randall Christensen, on a soon-to-be-revealed fashion project, utilizing her unique ability to create cutting edge designs with mass market appeal and marketability. She specializes in designing and strategizing big-picture projects/brands and multiple skus, with a focus on the concept of emotional branding. Her voracious research gives life and credibility to her wildly creative and solidly strategic designs.
Living high in the Rocky Mountains, her exile from retail stores has fueled her resourcefulness, motivating the use of materials beyond their original function (yes, she has been known to rummage through a dumpster now and then). Her latest triumph: holiday decorations using recycled shopping bags, soda pop cartons, a dismantled chandelier, and an industrial heat gun.
