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

Sculptor Paige Bradley draws inspiration from relationships and an inner dialog about the human form. Bradley now works out of a studio in Stamford, 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.”

  1. I love Paige’s work. I met her in Carmel at a workshop by Richard MacDonald in 2004. I was in awe then and still. Funny, because I liked her work better than Richard’s!

    Congratulations on your success Paige and thanks Jason for this wonderful podcast. Great questions. I can relate to her very well and her advice. Thank you!

  2. Inspiring. I wish I could be half as articulate as Paige.

    The interview somewhat skirted the issue sculptures face, of galleries treating painters and sculptors the same way financially. However, the material and processing costs the sculptor faces are orders of magnitude larger than the painter experiences. Perhaps Jason could address this issue further?

  3. I gleaned Paige had some support from her parents coming up, but even if you don’t, her comments about knowing in the depths of your soul, you were born to create is priceless. Wish I heard this when I was 17, as I knew around six this is what I was meant to do but didn’t until my 50s. So if your a young doubting artist this is very wise advise. Her approach to her work in the sense that you can have twenty things going at once, abstract and classical pieces alike and still have cohesiveness spoke to me as well. I especially loved her story just starting out, being being told no by a gallery because she didn’t have a body of work, bio etc and then brought her piece to the gallery and let it do all the talking! Fabulous. Thank you Paige and Jason for the insightful questions and your blog. I appreciate it very much!
