I created ArtStyle Blog, A Voice for Artists in Chicago, to fulfill a dream of being able to write freely and creatively about the talented artists who live and work in Chicago and to give them the recognition that they deserve. ArtStyle Blog focuses on the arts, culture, and lifestyle in this dynamic and fluid city, and provides a forum for artists, idealists, and visionaries who strive to make a difference in this world. – Amy A. Rudberg




Our interviews are normally conducted in person with visits to the artists’ studios. Depending on the artists’ requests and our time and availability, we also conduct interviews via email or telephone or a combination of methods. We consider all requests for interviews, but please keep in mind that we have limited time, resources, and staff and cannot comply with all requests. Due to the volume of email we receive, we are unable to answer every email. Thank you for your understanding.
