Delighted to see The Artist magazine now with a new digital receptive audience with Pocketmags. Yet more artists will be able to hear about the inspirational articles I contribute to. All progressive, all intuitive and all inclusive. Excellent idea and forward thinking! Reviewed Monday, January 4, 2021
