Jean M. Judd selected for inclusion in the book Profiles in Passion, Volume One: Artists & Artisans



Textile artist Jean M. Judd of Cushing, Wisconsin was one of 51 artists and artisans selected for inclusion in Profiles in Passion, Volume One: Artists & Artisans released in March of 2014 by freelance writer, Buz Swerkstrom. 
 Swerkstrom has spent the last 30 years interviewing over 300 artists and artisans in northwestern Wisconsin and beyond. These interviews, conducted with a tape recorder and still camera, reveal the creative passion that each of the featured people bring to their work. Originally, regional newspapers and magazines featured small portions of these interviews. Swerkstrom is now expanding the interviews to provide a more clear and whole picture of each artist’s passion, process, and personal story.

This first volume features artists who work with wood, metal, ceramics, glass, textiles, film, paint, photography, and several other mediums. Swerkstrom recreates the interviews in the artists' studios in such a way that readers feel that they are part of the conversations.

The book is available on Amazon.com, at Barnes and Noble, and at other brick-and-mortar booksellers as well as directly from the writer.
