Paula Benfer believes making art and teaching art are equally important, one enriches the other. Creating her own art in her eclectic style informed her teaching. Through her mediums she told stories. While teaching art she listened to the voices of her students.
Paula says, "What is important to me is the narrative quality in my work. Through my art I narrate the stories of growing up on a farm in Eastern Iowa. My images tell stories about my ancestors or places which are important to me."
