About The Artist

My name is Paula Clayton, and I'm the owner of "In A Jungle", based in Chicago, one of the world's grittiest jungles.

I specialize in trans dimensional travel and shapeshifting. Oh no, hang on. Close. I'm an artist - I paint whatever best crazy thing you & I can think of.


I paint portraits of inner magic, interior murals, garden panels, dead gorgeous window seats and caskets. Whatever can take paint and you’d like to have beautified.


I also offer print reproductions of the work you have commissioned so that you can send prints to friends and family to share your fine art. Not only do you get the original work in all its texture and arty glory, you have a great selection of personally unique gifts available to you.


Prints can be ordered on fine art paper, metal, stretched canvas and more. You get to share your unique gift with your choice in size and price range.


Caskets, Cats, and Magic: Why I Paint


Painting, for me, has always been part of staying vaguely sane.


I was born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand. I have been in the United States for the majority of the last 20 years during which I have studied and worked as a mural painter and decorative artist.


I went back to New Zealand for about 3 years starting in 2011 to care for my mother. While I was at home with Mum, I found myself painting, because, well, that’s what I do.  I had a ball over those 3 years painting whatever the heck I felt like. Several of the series in my shop grew from that period in my life, beginning with the power poles, moving on to Karate Mermaids, and then landscapes. With occasional segues into whatever else appealed.


In 2014, I returned to the United States and worked as a Pharmacy Technician. But... ehhh, I wanted more.


Since 2015 I am no longer a Pharmacy Tech - I am back to being a Fine Artist, with interesting forays back to the world of murals.

I'm "In A Jungle", zooming around in Fine Art mode, having a blast with the possibilities of pixels and paint. Wild arty possibilities and collaborations. Explorations. Adventure.

Welcome to the Jungle!
