    PRIMERA ARTISTA RESIDENTE
    DOÑA PAULA SANTOS

    1912 | 2015

    Doña Paula learned to weave at age 4 from her grandmother in her ancestral town of San Antonio Aguas Calientes. She was the mill’s first artist in residence, living on site and working with Mitchell Denburg on unique textiles for over three decades.

    In collaboration with New Roots Foundation, Doña Paula cultivated artistic expression within her craft, through the ancient designs of her village as much as with non-traditional colors and layouts.
    Doña Paula lived to be 103 years old, and we at New Roots Foundation still take inspiration from her incredible work and long life.
