Portrait by Donna Granata - 2001
Paula Odor (1927 - )
Painter and etcher Paula Odor began her studies at the Texas State College for Woman, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Advertising Design. She went on to receive a teaching degree in elementary education and eventually taught in Ventura public schools from 1955 to 1982. Her post-graduate work includes a master's degree in printmaking from New Mexico Highlands University.
Odor's watercolors emphasize composition and design establishing an equilibrium of all the elements within the picture plane. Her realistic paintings have a wonderful luminous quality further enhanced by her superior drafting skills.

Widely collected throughout the United States, Odor's work can be seen at the Leeds-Wallace Gallery at 1540 East Main Street in Ventura.
