My name is Paula Toledo.
I am a self-taught painter from Guadalajara, Mexico.
1. What is the best thing about your profession?
The best thing about my profession is that besides doing what I like, I manage my time and I also have a lot of solitude that I use to introspect on myself.
2. What is your favorite quotation?
Well, the truth is there are many quotes that I love and with which I identify myself. But there is one in particular that I heard once when I was a girl and it stayed very deep, I do not know who is the author, but it says: "Never cut what you can untie." For me in this time when everything is disposable, even people, says a lot about perseverance, tolerance, loyalty.
3. What was your first art work?
It was for my house, I didn't know I could paint, but I wanted to try, because there was nothing I liked and I had some ideas. So I painted an orange pear with an orange background. I liked the result and then I made a second painting with the same theme, only that they were two pears, ha ha ha
4. What food, drink or song inspires you? I really like food and to drink natural water with a little bit of lemon, my favorite fruit is Mango. But what changes my mood is music, I like jazz and music from the 50's, 60's, actually I have my list of songs on Spotify and that's what makes me happy, love it.
5. What do you think when you go to the grocery store?
I think about getting to cook a good meal. To share it with the people I love the most.
6. What superpower would you like to have and why?
I would like to be tireless and immortal so I don't have to sleep and I can make the most of every second of my life.
I think there are so many things to do that there is not enough time and energy to do it all and I would love that there was that super power to achieve everything.
