This is not a woman who is merely emulating the past – Haley Edwards , The Seattle Times


” Paula has been instrumental in helping Golden Echo Films deliver our first theatrical release film “A Wink and A Smile” and our forthcoming film “Kings“. Her artistic depth, stage production expertise and ability to drive a project to completion (on budget! on schedule!) are essential to our business. She is the best in Seattle and we’ll continue to use her for all our projects.”
Jack Timmons | Executive Producer | Golden Echo Films | Seattle , WA


“Paula The Swedish Housewife never fails to bring top-notch talent to the Triple Door. Her reach into the netherworld of underground yet well-known-in their-worlds artists never ceases to amaze us. Each of her shows sheds light on acts that vary greatly in what they do, presentation and excitement. The one main thing that does not vary is the draw, as her shows sell well if not out!”
Scott Giampino | Talent Buyer | The Triple Door | Seattle, WA


“She’s a Great producer”– Dixie Evans “The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque”
Grande Dame of The Burlesque Hall of Fame | Las Vegas, NV


“Paula has been an absolute inspiring joy to work with. She is effective, efficient, and timely upon design and delivery of her events. She made the experience of planning my event feel hand crafted; she created a haute couture performance! The show was received extremely well by my guests, they were amazed and instantly addicted. The performance was a whimsically enchanting experience that added a seductive, adult touch to an annual event that was becoming predictable. I received a landslide of compliments and accolades for a breath taking show!”
Hollie Bostrom |Emerald Queen Hotel & Casinos |Tacoma, WA


“A superhero among producers. In the 6 years she’s been involved with the Burlesque Hall of Fame, Paula has consistently raised the bar with each show, drawing ever-increasing crowds (and funds) at each event; all while maintaining the same impeccable quality, clockwork timing and unique sense of intimacy her Seattle productions are known for. Motivated, fiercely creative and unbelievably gracious under pressure, Paula is the woman you’d want beside you in a foxhole–so needless to say, having her as a part of our production team has been an honor and a privilege.”
Laura Herbert | Executive Producer The Burlesque Hall of Fame | Las Vegas, NV


“Finally someone who understands my vision and can expound with her own. Bravo!”  Jackie Roberts | Owner | The Pink Door |Seattle, WA

“The Swedish Housewife is the consummate producer. She is equally adept at putting on one hell of a show and hostessing a fabulous cocktail party!
I love her.”
Justin Bond

“Thanks for the amazing Justin show. It was transcendent and you are wonderful to keep bringing so much genius to Seattle!”Sarah Rudinoff
