I saw the first edition Island Arts Magazine about the time I felt I should be starting to promote my work. I was impressed and have placed an ad in each edition since. I have received many positive comments on the ads suggesting it is widely read. I am very pleased that we have an energetic Island magazine that appears to be thriving and where we get the opportunity to increase our local profile. My thanks and congratulations to Susan on her growing success.
