Yes, it's mid-August and thus time for another refreshing Dog Days Artist Watch at the international online arts magazine Escape Into Life. Today's column, featuring work by the masterly paper artist Yun Gee Bradley, is guaranteed to bring you in from the heat outdoors and leave you in front of your computer in awe of the artist's talent.

Yun Gee, who has lived in America since 1995, loves to make things, and she does so with joy, Hanji paper (made from mulberry bark), glue, and tweezers or her fingers. Using a technique she developed on her own, Yun Gee shapes into being beautiful images of animals, from wildlife to dogs and cats, portraits of children and adults, and abstractions. She wields her tools the way painters use their brushes. The results are astonishing.

For today's Artist Watch column, Yun Gee has provided 10 images of dogs, small and large and in-between, all full of expression and each astonishingly realistic; an Artist Statement; and a brief biography. Links to her Website and social media also are available.
