History

In 1994, Kellene Giloff, Founder and President, realized there was a need for a full-color magazine dedicated to inspiring artwork for rubber stamp artists. The Stampers' Sampler was born with a mere 20 pages of artwork submitted by stampers throughout the world. Realizing a need for more advanced artwork that encompassed mixed-media with stamping, Giloff created Somerset Studio, a publication that revolutionized the industry and quickly became the flagship magazine for the company. From there, the company continued to spin off a variety of periodicals that quickly broadened their market.
