Originally from Mexico City, via California, and South Carolina, Paulina has been immersed in the fields of art and graphic design for over 15 years. She received a B.F.A. from the Academy of Art University and the University of San Francisco in 1999. More recently, in October of 2017, she earned an M.F.A. from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. She is an adjunct professor at Colorado Mountain College (CMC) and lives in lovely Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
Current Body of Work
Paulina's current body of work explores basic shape, texture, and pattern through multiplicity, with paper as both a 2-dimensional medium and a 3-dimensional substrate. She draws inspiration from the underlying, sometimes microscopic structures of nature, as they become building blocks within all organic matter. Repetition, both as a design element and a working process, allows her to deconstruct and reconstruct space in varying ways.
