Paola Berthoin was
born in London,
England, and came
to Carmel Valley in
 1965 with her mother
and three sisters.
She is a graduate
of Carmel High School
 and California College
of the Arts where she
specialized in
printmaking, handmade
 paper and animal drawing.

Paola's deep commitment to living in the Carmel Valley over the past forty-nine years and tending the land she has lived on for forty years has infused her 
 visionary ways of interpreting the land through painting, writing, 
and advocacy for all watersheds of the Earth. From being a pastry 
chef and owning and running a restaurant with her mother when 
 Paola was twenty-four years old to establishing the organization, 
RisingLeaf Watershed Arts in 2001, completing Passion for Place: 
Community Reflections on the Carmel River Watershed in 2012 
and organizing community arts events focused on the Carmel River 
Watershed, many seeds of ecological awareness through the 
arts have been and continue to be planted locally and globally.
