Featured in Featuring!

I've been quietly sitting on a little secret for the last four months and it's time for the big reveal....TA DAA!  I'm the "Artist in the Spotlight" for issue 2 of Featuring magazine!!!  Featuring is a brand new art magazine based in the Netherlands, a glossy, full color, professionally-printed brain child of artist Marit Barentsen.

Here's what I love about Featuring in a nutshell: it has depth.  It isn't a mash-up of endless ads and beautiful fluff nor is it a clique-y forum for well-established artists to show off their latest products.  Featuring magazine lets the artists' voices shout from the rooftops.  The "spotlight" article is entirely in my own words; after reading my blog, the editors sent me about a million questions and then used my answers word for word - no paraphrasing, no standard interview questions.  I am so proud that my very first publication in a magazine ended up on the pages of Featuring, a much-needed breath of fresh air for the art magazine world.

As an aside, you'll see that I used my maiden name "Reuss" rather than "Remy" for this article.  Both last names are me!  For a little while now, I've been using my maiden name as a sort of pen name on the web.  I felt that since this was such a big step in my art career, it would be only right to honor my roots.  In short, I wanted my relatives to see the family name in print rather than my ex-husband's surname.  All my writings and photos continue to carry "Remy" on the copyright until I can go through the process of officially changing my name...

Additional Note:  Featuring is available to purchase online only (no subscriptions) so to get your hands on a copy, click on over to the Featuring website!
