Italian painter, Paola Boni was born in Colorno, Parma where she lives and works today. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and Commerce and for years she has worked in her family's business until she decided to follow her strongest desire: to work every day with colors.
Paola's passion for drawing has been part of her life since childhood and thanks to Lesley Harrison’s book “Painting Animals That Touch the Heart”, she fell in love with pastel painting.
"Being very meticulous in reproducing details, I have thus discovered oil painting as a means to satisfy my requirements, even if I am constantly looking for new techniques to make my subjects ever more realistic, by experimenting with new tho and three-dimensional possibilities."
Very active on the international art scene, Paola Boni has exhibited in solo and group shows nationally and internationally including in Parma, Palermo, Brescia, Viterbo, Riccione, Noto, Bologna, Longarone, Forte dei Marmi, Cannes, Montecarlo, Oviedo, Madrid, Genova, London, Santa Monica.
