Paola was born in Argentina and began drawing by instinct. At the age of 6, she regularly met with a neighbour to have fun painting "little women." She then participated in art workshops where she discovered different materials and techniques.
As an adult, she studied at the School of Fine Arts, where she was particularly interested in drawing and engraving. She obtained a scholarship to train alongside the master Alfredo de Vicenzo (a professor of engraving). During the first 10 years of her career, Paola was dedicated to these two disciplines in all their forms: zincography, lithography, collage and mixed media. Her works were black and white, and included a process of emotional catharsis (purification of the passions through art) in which the artist expressed her anguish.
At the birth of her son, Paola began teaching art to children and completely changed her way of working. She started playing with paints and colours through simple human forms and pure and vibrant tones. She drew her inspiration from observing the drawings of her students.
Paola began to perceive emotions that emanated from these joyous "primitive” creations. At that time, she created series with themes of the sun, chess games, couples or maternity. Since 2010, her imagination has added more and more details of the female figure. She incorporates drawing and coloured lines, using acrylic on wood or cloth, mixed with pencil, pen, pastel or collage.
The artist's approach is to live from her art and for her art. Her painted works are dedicated to the public, and once completed, they no longer are her own. Her pleasure comes from creating them everyday.
Paola's paintings are an invitation to journey into the world of childhood, however this fresh and poetic theme does not exclude an air of seriousness and deeper reflection.
