February 2008 – Paula Ross, Venice Artist

 On December 19, long-time Venice resident and artist, Paula Ross, passed away. Paula’s life was art. There wasn’t one thing she touched that didn’t become more beautiful because of her talent. 
She is best known for her hand-tinted photographs of famous jazz icons. Her vast library of work includes everyone from Billie Holiday and Chet Baker to Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and Sarah Vaughan. 
Her work has been displayed in Hal’s for many years, has been exhibited in galleries and museums and is part of many private collections.

Paula is survived by her daughter Pam Ross Hull and granddaughters Eliza Jazz, Zoe Skyz, and Adizen Izabella.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

A memorial will be held sometime in the near future. If you would like more information about it, please send your e-mail address to <> and details will be forwarded to you when they are finalized.
