American born in 1958, Paula Hayes received an MFA from Parsons School of Design in NYC in 1989 and a BS from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY in 1987.

For two decades Ms. Hayes has melded her interest in Art and Landscape Design into a unique practice that straddles the realms of art, design, landscape design, domestic and garden products and artist books. Since 2000, Ms. Hayes has designed many private residential landscapes for clients such as Marianne Boesky, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn and Nicholas Rohatyn, Rafael and Diana Viñoly, David and Monica Zwirner, Mickey and Jeanne Klein, Andrea Rosen and Jill Stuart and Ron Curtis, to name a few.

Public landscapes Ms. Hayes has designed include The Howard Hughes Medical Research Campus in Virginia, the W Hotel South Beach, Florida and the Hauser and Wirth Gallery in NYC. Ms. Hayes has had an acclaimed exhibition in the lobby of MoMA in NYC, and a multi-faceted exhibition at the Tang Museum in Saratoga Springs. In the fall of 2011 Ms. Hayes had an exhibition at the Wexner Art Center in Columbus, Ohio and Lever House in NYC. A highly abbreviated list of collectors of Ms. Hayes’s work include: Aby Rosen, Alberto Mugrabi, David Zwirner, Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, Marianne Boesky, and Daniel and Margaret Loeb. Over the last 20 years Ms. Hayes has exhibited at The Fawbush Gallery, Salon 94, Marianne Boesky Gallery (all in NYC); MoCA, LA; the Schauffhausen Museum in Shauffhausen, Switzerland; Galerie fur Landscaftkunst in Hamburg, Germany; The Patricia Low Galerie in Gstaad, Switzerland; and Eigen and Art in Berlin, Germany to name but a few.

Ms. Hayes has been nominated for a Cooper Hewitt Design Award in Landscape Design in 2009, and in Landscape Architecture and Design Mind in 2011. She has design patents registered for 3 of her products in the US, the EU and Canada, awarded in 2010 and 2011.
