As an artist, Paula Brody is best known for her intricate, three-dimensional sculptural collages. Paula’s paper sculptures are often fondly referred to as “BRODAGES.” Paula uses a variety of her own hand-painted papers to create these works of art available by commission in a wide array of colors and sizes. Most often using Japanese rice papers, called Masa, Paula gently folds and applies colorful strips of paper to form the sculptural patterns.
Paula is often asked, “What inspired this unique collage form?” Her inspiration came from watching ocean white caps and wanting to recreate an abstract expression of their energy. She marvels when she also finds these sculptural patterns in beach sand, in cloud formations, or in other forms of nature’s mysteries.
