Paige Kalena Follmann works out of her studio in the eclectic neighborhood of Virginia Highland, located in Atlanta, GA. Paige is a figurative artist known for her striking use of color, pattern and shape. Her figurative painting style has been described as a modern and imaginative interpretation of classical work or “Matisse meets Picasso." Viewers tend to be drawn to Paige’s work because her subjects are stylized – she represents them in a non-realistic manner. Her work has both a whimsical and sophisticated feel, piquing the viewer's imagination.
Paige’s work has quickly caught the attention of art collectors and interior designers, and she is considered to be a rising star in the art world. Her work has garnered much attention, earning her publicity from interior design bloggers and publications including The Atlantan Modern Luxury Magazine, Jezebel Magazine, Dallas Magazine and The Atlanta Journal Constitution. Jezebel Magazine has named Paige one of the "rising art stars" of Atlanta in their home-themed issue of the October 2017 magazine.
Paige's work is represented by Anne Irwin Fine Art located in the Miami Circle Design District of Atlanta and her work is also exhibited at Quogue Gallery located in the Hamptons, NY. She is a favorite among interior designers who admire her modern interpretation of classical art.
