artists' cafe

I do like surprises. Earlier this month I was visiting the website for Stampington & Company and came across the following image...


First thing I noticed was that I liked the color palette. Then I saw and loved the artwork. And then I noticed my name. On the cover. Hmmm....thought I should explore that more fully. I looked at the Table of Contents page online and saw a picture of the artwork (my artwork) listed as being on page 128. And I saw that my artist portfolio was included in this issue.



artists' cafe is an annual magazine that culls the "best of Somerset Mixed-Media" from all their publications. All 8 eight issues, including the current Volume 8, are available here.

My artist portfolio was originally published in the May/June 2012 issue of Somerset Studio and includes an interview with Rice Freeman-Zachary and a load of art images. Stampington's magazines are known for their amazing detail shots of art and there are also many of those included as well. Happy I get to share these pages with so many incredible artists, including

Sending thanks to Senior Managing Editor Amber Demein for this happy surprise!
