RedDot Podcast | Episode 021 | An Interview with Sculptor Paige Bradley

October 30, 2018

Sculptor Paige Bradley draws inspiration from relationships and an inner dialog about the human form. Bradley now works out of a studio in Stanford, Connecticut, but in the past she's maintained studios in New York City, and in her hometown of Carmel, California.

Bradley's work has been featured in galleries across the United States, and her sculpture is in collections around the world.

In my interview with Bradley, she shares insights about her life-long journey to express her vision and overcome the challenges that face artists as they strive to build a career.

When I asked Paige if there was ever any question about whether or not she would pursue her art as her profession, she says there never was.

"I didn't allow the question to even come in." she says. "There were days where it was dark, and I didn't know how I would pay bills, and it seemed hopeless and scary, and I was sleepless . . . but within 48 hours, usually, an angel would walk in to my studio and buy a sculpture from me. It just felt like the universe always sent me a signal that I was on the right track."

RedDot Podcast | Episode 020 | An Interview with Canadian Artist Ashley Anne Clark

October 22, 2018

Artist Ashley Anne Clark lives on remote Prince Edward Island in Canada's maritime provinces. Clark focuses on wildlife subject-matter and shows her work in galleries in Canada and the United States. In her early thirties, Clark is still in the early phases of her career, but she's already learned a lot about the business.

"It's good to remember that it is a journey, and can be a struggle at times," Clark says, "but as long as you just keep pushing forward and keep letting stuff out and keep creating, and eventually you'll be moving forward."
