Pauline Graziano creates one-of-a-kind conversation pieces by using the celebrated child’s toy, Etch A Sketch, as her canvas. In traditional Etch A Sketch fashion, she turns the two white dials and draws with one continuous line. Once the sketch is complete, she carefully disassembles the Etch A Sketch and removes the stylus and aluminum powder from the inside to create a permanent masterpiece.
We asked Pauline where she gets her inspiration and she told us, “Artistic expression has always been a necessary component of my life. Through dance, sculpting and drawing, I get to spend time in a space where the mysteries of our existence are held, a place beyond time and thought. Being a human, these mysteries are of great interest to me and I feel the more time I get to spend connecting with them, the happier I am. It seems as though I am not alone in this, and I am inspired to work when I see this spirit in another.”
