"What others see as paper towels, I see as a potential masterpiece."
Brenda's Story of Becoming
"The Paper Towel Artist "
Inventor of "3-Dimensional Canvas Sculptured Art Process Using Paper Towel.
Dr. Brenda Caldwell's career as an award-winning artist began and almost ended in first grade after she won a contest, garnering local news coverage, a $100 savings bond, and a commemorative plaque to mark her achievement. Despite this auspicious beginning, Brenda never touched art again until 2011, when a heartfelt commission from a loved one sparked an rediscovery of her love for creative expression. While working on this first piece, she discovered a unique technique of using foam and typing paper to create a textured look. Then, in 2014 it happened accidently. Brenda's use of paper towels was discovered while wiping paint off her hands after painting strips of copy paper. In that epiphany moment, she realized the paper towels had a thickness that gave birth to the invention of her process she calls "three-dimensional canvas sculpted art using paper towels". Since then, she has been sculpting 3-dimensional art on canvas using paper towels as her medium to create everything from animals to musical instruments and even clothing. Each creation includes three-dimensional word art that conveys an inspirational "living art". Her signature is a touch of sparkle that accentuates the brilliance of each piece of artwork.
