The Left Brain Artist

Suzanne Redmond talks with artists about their artwork, techniques, and how they’ve created a successful business. With her background in accounting, finance, and exhibiting art, she knows what it takes to get your artwork seen and sold. She’s chosen artists who are working their business – exhibiting their art, teaching others, and finding unusual opportunities. You’ll hear from some unsung artists, who are extremely talented and creative, and hopefully you’ll look up their work and be inspired by what they do. Artists really do the coolest things, and they do this while running a family, traveling, and living an art-filled life. Enjoy listening to these successful artists who are happy to share the keys to their success with you.

Laurie Mika is a polymer clay artist who shapes, paints and stamps clay, and assembles the pieces into mosaic creations. Her polymer clay tiles can be square like traditional mosaics, or they can take on an organic form. Laurie’s mixed media art has evolved over the years, but she’s stayed true to her love of medieval and renaissance styles. Many of her pieces contain words and faces, through stamps or image transfers. Her creations have been published in many publications, and she has taught her techniques in workshops and online classes. She has also written a book called Mixed Media Mosaics.
