Artist Robert Amos gives readers a fascinating insider's tour of studios on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands where some of Canada's best-known artists create works.

Spanning more than 15 years of interviews and photographs, Amos has created panoramic collages of these artists' creative spaces, and even more revealing images with his words. Not merely biography, Amos includes examples of completed works, and the insight that only another artist, and talented arts writer, can.

Artists in Their Studios is both a stunning compilation of our Canadian artistic heritage, and proof that art work in progress is art in itself.

Enter the studios of: Robert Amos, Colin Graham, Ron Parker, Sarah Amos, Ted Harrison, Myfanwy Pavelic, Nixie Barton, Harry Heine, Jerry Pethick, Robert Bateman, Martin Honisch, Geoffrey Rock, Pat Martin Bates, E.J. Hughes, Carole Sabiston, Maxwell Bates, Fenwick Lansdowne, Duncan Regehr, Maarten Schaddelee, Zhang Bu, Grant Leier, Phyllis Serota, Emily Carr, Miles Lowry, Godfrey Stephens, Pat Cook, Judy McLaren, Norman Yates, Len Gibbs, Wayne Ngan, Jimmy Wright, Jim Gordaneer, Peggy Walton Packard.
