Seiko grew up in a family of art enthusiasts and nonprofessional artists who instilled her with their passion for contemporary art. From a young age, she got to know the work of the leading exponents of abstract expressionism and geometric abstraction.
After obtaining a degree in Translation, her thirst for knowledge and her inclination to gather a variety of experiences led her to live in Ireland, Amsterdam, and New York. She pursued her studies and worked in diverse industries, such as programming and graphic design.
Whilst looking for her true vocation, she discovered printmaking, studying under Spanish printmaker and sculptor Mar Prat, becoming her studio assistant.
Her artistically inclined upbringing encouraged Paula to finally choose a career in the Arts, growing into a self-taught fine artist focusing on a variety of media.
As a self-taught artist, I’ve learned to explore my creativity in a variety of ways.
My primary line of work is the translation into visual compositions of primitive archetypes, and how these help shape the collective unconscious.
All of my processes are inspired by daily spiritual practices and commitment to self-discovery through awareness.
I create minimal, vibrant artworks for bold, passionate collectors with modern spaces.
My work is said to be deep, intense, and full of meaning.
