I know where the good stuff is… Plus, would you like to see where an artist creates their magic? Want to see the space that inspires them? How cool is it that you get to see what few can?

With “The Artsy One Tour Guide” you can also find the hidden treasures, have an adventure and have a story to go along with that special piece of artwork you purchase!

Linda Boss is a local artist who has lived and worked in the area for over thirty years. She knows the artists, has been to the studios and galleries and is familiar with the styles of artwork. She created the “Artsy One Tour Guide Service” because she saw an opportunity to “Connect people looking for specific types of art with the artists who create it”. Tell me what you are looking for… I’ll help you find it!

Let Linda put together a customized itinerary of guided artist studio visits that creates the perfect day for you to enjoy your art experience during your stay in Northern Michigan… add to your art collection and leave with new “artsy friends”.

Artists in Studio Working


The west coast of Northern Michigan has long been known for its beautiful scenery and has been the subject of art of all mediums in all styles and manners imaginable. It has attracted vast numbers of artists to visit and take advantage of the year around inspirations. Over the years more and more have moved their studios here to live, work, retire and well, create. Art lovers are just waiting to appreciate this amazing population of artists.

The Artsy One Tour Guide Service offers a variety of private group tours of local studios and galleries covering a wide range of styles, most usually available by appointment only. These tours are for those who appreciate personal attention as opposed to joining a group of tourists led by a docent with a memorized script.
