Handpainted Jewelry Set, Pascalia Mattioli

I was born and raised in Worcester, Massachusetts and lived here the majority of my life.  I enjoy abstract drawing and painting and am highly influenced by my Greek culture and heritage.  Growing up, I was surrounded by the beautiful light blue of my ancestral flag, a color that is predominant in the majority of my work.  Bright colors, organic lines and intricate patterns define my aesthetic passion - I love turning old “things” into beautiful creations by painting and redesigning them.  I graduated from Clark University with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art.  I have been teaching at South High Community School for the last fourteen years, trying to inspire my students to find their own passions.
