About the artist:
Hello! my name is Paola and I am a photography enthusiast. I am very passionate about capturing the life that takes place around me, especially when traveling the world with my husband, Joe. My eyes are always looking for a good way of framing what is around me!
I have always been interested in artistic expression. As a little girl I participated in several arts classes where I learned how to draw and paint. I got my first camera when I was 9 as a present from my Godmother Teresa. I remember going around with the very simple Vivitar, trying to take pictures of my family, my pets, my home. In the last few years, photography has taken a more stellar role in my artistic life and pursuits.
