PaintWorks reaches a  broad market, ranging from mature artists to youthful, sophisticated hobbyists with emerging decorative painting interests.

We Know Our Readers

The editor and marketing staff at PaintWorks keep in touch with readers at shows and markets and via email. This allows us to constantly refine our magazine to directly reflect the passions and fill the creative needs of people who share our interests. Because PaintWorks is a niche publication, we have been able to establish greater reader involvement than many generalist titles.

Our readers are active artists—truly an involved and focused market. Readership is 98% female and paints using all mediums.
