Aside from a few childhood drawings of trees, horses, and bibles, Paula Lalala began making art in 1983 and has been working passionately ever since. The Paula Lalala MVSEVM evolved out of a body of deeply personal autobiographical work, which Paula could not bring herself to part with. The MVSEVM is one of many art projects by Paula Lalala.

Her work has been exhibited at numerous venues, and is in private, public, and corporate collections. Her only child, a son, is now grown. She and her partner, Jack, an author and musician, live in Brooklyn, New York.
