Paula Benjaminson


b. 1986, HK.


Paula Benjaminson crossed over into the world of art after her education in International Relations and a long career in the US Foreign Service. Exploring color and shape as a quilter, Paula began printing her own fabrics in Africa, which led to a fascination with surface design on fabric and paper. Paula has taught quilting, surface design, and printing in Europe, Africa, and North America. Her current work often features her hand-printed fabrics and paper sewn together into artist books, as well as art quilts and miniature costumes incorporating her own painted and printed fabrics.
