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.

Artist Yulia Brodskaya creates elegant handmade and very detailed paper illustrations. She cuts strips of paper, and folds, cuts, and spirals the strips, adhering them by gluing the edge. Originally from Moscow, she now lives with her family outside of London. She mentioned that her family only speaks Russian in their home, but I think she did very well going out of her comfort zone and talking English with me. Yulia has done over 200 paper art commissions, including a logo for Wimbledon and the packaging for Issey Miyake cologne. Lately she’s been making paper portraits, using many colors and paper shapes to get the skin tone just right. She’s also published a book called Painting with Paper: Paper on the Edge. Show notes for all of these episodes can be found on my website at
