Paige Korynta, paperbump, is an Alaskan born and raised - upside down, inside out, little northern oddball. Having had experienced the push and pull of obsessive compulsive disorder and an underlying heart condition since she was 3 ft tall and covered in mud, her art has always allowed for a safe place. A "secret garden" from the physical or even mental throws of existing in her body. A place where pain can sit and chat with itself for a while. Paige incorporates continual death and regrowth into her art, the warm bodies of Alaskan women and the cold soil beneath their boots. She is now 20 years old, living and healing with her parents and younger brother in Anchorage, Alaska.
