Paula Mould is a mentor, author, and artist who works primarily with acrylic paints on stretched canvas or on cradled birch panels.
Paula has had the privilege to paint for a nonprofit organization called IMAlive from 2016 until 2018. The main focus of IMAlive is to prevent suicide as well as spread suicide awareness all across America. In order to raise funds to achieve their goal, IMAlive does outreach through attending conventions for the TV show, Supernatural. With that being said, Paula’s job was to paint between two to four large canvases (from 2’x4′ to 4’x4′) each month that there was a convention taking place. Furthermore, some months had more than one convention so she was painting rather frequently. From there, IMAlive used her paintings and canvases to help raise the funding needed to spread suicide awareness. Basically, representatives of IMAlive would go to the conventions and then have the cast of Supernatural sign Paula’s paintings. Afterward, they auctioned them off to raise funds for IMAlive which is super cool when you think that one piece of art can have such an impact on the lives of so many people.
Paula herself even states that:
“During that time my marriage was falling apart and I had some other things going on in my life. Painting for IMAlive gave me purpose, helped me contribute to my larger community of fellow fans, and kept me busy. The connections and friendships I made are with me to this day.”
So not only was she helping others through her paintings but her art also provided her with a healthy outlet for her emotions.
