First and foremost, I am artist. I create in many mediums and thoroughly enjoy art as a whole.
I studied at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and L’Universitá Per Stranieri in Perugia, Italy then began working as a freelance artist: as a stylist, for numerous fashion houses and photographers, including Rebecca Blake and Patricia Field and as an illustrator, including illustrating Dress For Health, by Maggie and Stephen Nussdorf. Later, I was hired full time as Art Director of the Evan-Picone Fashion Studio and promoted shortly thereafter to Studio Director. I oversaw and ran a seven person design studio housing the Evan-Picone designers, a fabric library, and an advertising and public relations department.
After working for others, it was time for my own company, Pauletta Brooks Wearable Art, creating jewelry and home accessories for designers and stores. My work has appeared in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Times, The Daily News, Ornament Magazine, Art in America, The Encyclopedia of Jewelry Making Techniques, by Jinks McGrath and numerous other publications and catalogues. I continue with my other media and book projects under the umbrella of Something From Nothing Creative...a true melting pot of artistic thought and process.
I started this blog to give more voice to my creations and share my inspirations and thoughts on current trends in the creative world. I'm continually intrigued by new materials, points of view, and methods in constructing art.
