Focus on Fine Art: Meet the F+W Media Fine Art Community

F+W Media has a decades-old tradition of providing art instruction and inspiration to artists of all skill levels, mediums and genres through a variety of print and digital products. Whether online or in-person, we provide artists the opportunity to improve their craft, interact in our online forums and communities with like-minded artists, share personal insights, and celebrate success through our fine art competitions.

“As the leading publisher of magazines and books for artists, we are proud to provide art instruction from the world’s best artists. Whether a beginner or experienced artist, we strive to offer our consumers a wide range of quality products and services from art videos and digital downloads, to our Artist’s Network University,” said Jamie Markle, Publisher and Editorial Director. Jamie joined F+W in 2000 and throughout his editorial career, Jamie developed and edited many art instruction books for North Light, including those by authors such as Charles Reid, Claudia Nice and Lee Hammond.

In 2007 Jamie became Publisher of North Light Books, and in 2010 was appointed to his current position as the Publisher and Editorial Director for the entire Fine Art Community at F+W. In addition to his 20 years in product and media development, Jamie holds a degree in Fine Art with a concentration in Painting and Drawing from Xavier University.

“Our artists are our focus – and we welcome feedback and input in all forms, through social media, or by joining our or artist forums,” he added.

“To get to know our Community, I suggest artists visit our North Light Shop. There they can view the complete portfolio of our team’s work: great art books, art supplies, art videos, fine art magazines, instructive painting downloads, online art classes, and more. And with our exclusive content, free digital downloads, VIP programs, and curated kits artists can feel confident they are getting the best possible selection and service: by artists, for artists,” Jamie added.
