The book profiles artists from all mediums: painters to sculptors; photographers to weavers, woodcarvers, model ship builders, and textile artists and many others. Enjoy the interviews from the last 30 years done by writer Buz Swerkstrom using a camera and tape recorder.

The profiles are more about why than how, fine-focused as they are on motivations, objectives, sensibilities, and satisfactions -- in other words, on those human aspects that make life both challenging and fulfilling.

Recommended Professional Books:

Some of these books may have updated versions out but these are links to the editions that I personally read, found valuable information within, and have in my professional book library. Some of these books were to help me see how different aspects of the art world operated so I would understand how galleries, art consultants and art advisors worked. These are acquistions over a 15 year period so some may be out of print and only available as used books.
