A new series of articles based on artists and the art world.

I will be starting with a couple of Wellington artists that I work with as part of my day job at The Art Library The intention is to write short articles on their craft and who they are and why they do it. It will be illustrated of course with examples of their own work and a photo of the artist and maybe a video or two of them creating. Further down the line I intend to interview curators, galleristas, collectors and those who work on the support side; framers, hangers etc.

If there is anyone you can think of that should be on my hit list, please do let me know.
