Paula Clendenin, a native West Virginian, has produced numerous works in various media. Her signature style incorporates imagery and icons that are personal and spiritual, in multiple layers of color and texture. She created "St. Jeannet" at Sunrise Museum while serving as artist-in-residence during her solo installation, "Crossroads". Her work contains a personal history with shapes that represent West Virginia's landscape and a feeling of energy that is expressed in color and form.
