This illustrator and painter who was born April 21, 1949 in Niagara Falls Ontario is a good example of the multitalented artists that appear regularly in Canada. Although she had several exhibitions of painting and drawings, she is best known and made her greatest impact as an actress and director. From 1970 to 1976, she toured internationally with Canadian Mime Theatre. In 1977 she co-founded a mime company called Theatre Beyond Words which featured the Potato People. Paulette playing “Nancy Potato” won the hearts of children and adults alike. From 1977 to 1989 this company toured internationally. Following this she acted in and directed plays throughout southwestern Ontario and British Columbia. She died 25 June 2006 at the age of 57 years.
“Theatre Beyond Words”, Bayview Playhouse Theatre, Toronto. March 10 – 14, year unknown. 610 mm h X 385 mm w.
