Paone was born and raised in Philadelphia, where he studied at the Philadelphia College of Art. He taught at several institutions such as the Pratt Institute in New York, The National Academy of Design in New York, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia. His works have been displayed in the U.S. and abroad, and have been featured in over 60 exhibitions.
Growing up in South Philadelphia, Paone was exposed and influenced by the traditional Mummers Parade. Little Girl depicts a child in a clown-like costume with a vibrant background. The saturated tones of blue, orange, and red create a chromatic environment much like one would see in the traditional folk parade.
