Paula Arwen Friedlander's Profile
Everything here is designed and created by me, Paula Arwen Friedlander. I am a native of Brooklyn, NY, now living upstate. My unique illustration style is created with hand cut paper silhouettes, collage, ink, and digital art. Silhouette art has a long history in many cultures. From silhouette portraits popular in the 1700’s to traditional cut paper art in China and Poland, it is a beautiful art form using the contrast of dark and light, shadows and illumination.
I am inspired by my surroundings, from the urban world of Brooklyn to the natural beauty of the Catskills. My imagination is fed by dreams and tales of myth and legend. The subjects of my work range from serene fantasy to morbid horror.
As well as being an illustrator & cut paper artist, I like to try my hand at many things, including Custom OOAK Fashion Dolls, transforming outcast and forgotten dolls into new life forms. I am also a novice...
