Subscriber Profiles

Below is an (alphabetical) listing of the artists featured in past issues of this publication. Click on each name to view their profile. 


Editor’s message: When I created The Artist’s Journal in 1997, I included a “Birthday” column, where my subscribers could post their artistic genre and their contact information if they were born in the month(s) of the current issue’s publication date. This was a small gesture of my gratitude for their subscription support. In 2017, I expanded that to a more detailed feature profile of one or two of my subscribers in each issue. Profiles are chosen lottery style, picked as numbers out of a “hat” for each issue (they are not received as submissions or suggestions from the public). Now that this publication is a free online source, I will continue to honour my paying subscribers by featuring them until their "subscriptions" expire. Then I will include those who pay for the optional service of the New Call Notices.

Caution . . . Please consider the year the profile was published: The information (and contact links) may have changed since their appearance in older issues.
