About Me

Paula Pietranera

Paula Pietranera

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Paula graduated as an Arquitect and later specialized in Historical Building Conservation and Restauration. She began studying art with Juan Fontana in 1999 and in 2004 her art was exhibited in the Buenos Aires “Centro Cultural Recoleta”.
Her inclination towards Oriental Arts, which she feels “touches the core of the viewer”, led her to study Sumi-e (ink painting) with Ricardo Burgos and Yamada Sensei (Yamada-ryu) in Argentina, where her sumi-e paintings have been exhibited in the Buenos Aires National Japanese Garden. She contin-ued her studies with Michael Hofmann in California, USA, and Japanese calligraphy with Yoko Nishina in Kyoto, Japan.
Paula currently lives as a resident Zen student in the San Francisco Zen Center, where she is also cura-tor for the Center’s art exhibitions and gallery.
