A young artist of 24, Lola was born in Studio City, California. She grew up between Sydney, New York, and LA, where she is currently based. Lola studied sculpture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received her BFA from OTIS college of Art and Design, where she won the Jurors Prize at their 2010 BFA show. Sculptor Robert Graham, whom she assisted until his death in 2008, was a major inspiration to Lola. Today she works with a wide variety of forms including sculpture, installation, drawing, and performance. A lover of literature and history, her work often employs metaphor, simile, metonymy, and other literary devices to create conceptual proximity between disparate things. She is influenced by investigative journalism, headlines, the editorializing of popular culture, magic, medicine, science, and the new age. Lola enjoys snake charming and boating with her family.
