Born in Chile, Paulina has lived in Italy since 1999. She was awarded a scholarship to Davidson College N.C, USA and graduated from the University Catolica de Chile, where she won several prizes for her highly regarded oil paintings.
Paulina is fascinated by history and historical figures. She uses literature, poetry and music as inspiration and starting points for her paintings.
Medieval tapestry, the Arts and Crafts Movement, Renaissance portraiture and William Morris also underpins her works. She combines these elements in her pieces, creating images that are not randomly put together but have a timeless quality resembling a sort of puzzle.
Paulina paintings embrace nature and beauty and she does not apologise for doing so. To aspire to harmony and beauty in ones work is a powerful message, which is clearly seen and celebrated in the works she creates.
