On this episode we meet Yulia Brodskaya, the artist who designed the 2016 Love stamp for the U.S. Postal Service. This Russian born illustrator creates stunning works of art using paper quilling techniques with a bit of a twist from her studio near London, England.
Yulia, 32, is a self-taught paper artist with a background in graphic design. Tune in to hear her tell the story of how she launched her illustration career after falling in love with paper.
Find out more about of Yulia’s work here and check out her impressive client list here. Read her story along with a feature about how artwork becomes a stamp in the newly released Issue 10 of CraftSanity Magazine now available in print and PDF versions.

In unrelated news, I’m traveling to Columbus, Ohio this weekend for MidWest Craft Con where I will be speaking and interviewing awesome handmade business people, artists and creative folks. I’m very excited about this because I’m bringing the giant quilted teepee from the cover of the newly released CraftSanity Magazine Issue 10 along on this adventure. Conference attendees are either going to love it or wonder if I’ve lost my mind completely. I’ll let you know how it goes. Ha!
