Artist Bio

Paola Evangelista first studied fashion design at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Her strong sense of three-dimensionality swayed her into the sculpture direction and she eventually discovered clay. She finished her Bachelor’s in Art degree at Central Connecticut State University under the instruction of ceramic and metal artist Vicente Garcia.

From the start of her ceramic studies Paola was always enchanted by the alternative firings, the primitive quality along with the hunt for the ethereal fulfilled her visual ambitions appetite. Her sense of discovery, experimentation, and her agile hands lend themselves to the pliability of the ceramic medium.

Paola’s artistic influences include Vincent Van Gogh and Naum Gabo whom she references in her work through the use of biomorphic lines and forms as well as rich visual and tactile textures.
