Typography, paper, and highly detailed hand-made craft objects is what she does. Yulia Brodskaya is a Russian born fine artist, perhaps you’ve seen her work?
These colorful handcrafted works of art are the creations of Monica Rodriguez. Monica is a professional artist, illustrator, jewelry designer, art teacher and art portfolio consultant.
“My work is all handmade, carefully handcrafted using colored paper, glue and varnish, all recycled, re-purposed materials. I would describe it as paper manipulation on found object or canvas. Mostly depicting animals but primarily color on canvas. My work is spiritual and I work intuitively choosing all my colors and steps based on feelings while meditating and focusing on nature. My primary focus is to make people stop and enjoy color, life, culture and fall in love with art without a need for content or any personal agenda.” We are totally feeling the vibes of Monica’s upbeat sculptures!
Monica can be found in her Brooklyn studio and teaching art at local events in New York. Visit her site here to see more work.

Everyone remembers arts and crafts time in elementary school, spending all day creating glue covered designs of pets and family members. But artist Fideli Sundqvist never grew out of her elementary days, and loves playing with paper. And she’s really, really, good at it.
Born in Upsalla Sweden, Fideli was brought up in a very artistic and academic environment, her mom being a potter and her father being a religious historian. The artistic climate of her childhood and her great interest in music were the foundations for her career choice. “During one period in my life, I was completely engrossed by album-cover art,” she says. “I particularly remember one cover that was made from a linoleum cut, it was a real eye-opener to discover that art form.” Fideli is inspired by everyday existence. “I think you have to give yourself a varied life, expose yourself to different types of impressions. Mostly, I think it is the work itself that gives birth to new ideas. Desire drives the work forward, as I heard someone say on the radio, and that is so true.” (via Strictly Paper)
