Next podcast: January 25, 5 pm ET

The premise: As a "new" artist attempting to earn a living at the nation's art fairs I often think about the business side of things. People are surprised that I even attempt the notion of doing it full time... without a pension! …

Seeking Advice for Establishing Myself in Florida

Hi Friends,

I am a military wife and jewelry artist. I moved for my husbands job from Virginia to Florida a few months ago. As I have been making attempts to re-establish myself here in Florida [New Smyrna Beach/Volusia County] I am hitting some crazy road blocks and I was wondering if any FL artists could share their perspective with me.

I know every state is different, but FL seems to have a lot of extra hoops to jump through. I am being told that I need to pay & have a…

Naples New Years Show-- A Big Letdown, horrible way to start the year

Well, I started my 44th year in the biz with a lot of hope.

I was loaded with lots of work, ten new images and I expected big results. This is usually a $3k-$4k show.

Ellen and I left Ybor early Friday morn under warm, clear skies. It was frigid everywhere else in the USA except Florida.

We knew the weather forecast, 90% rain due for Saturday with a clear but chilly Sunday.

We knew it would impact sales, but it was Naples. They always buy our work there.

I have done… Continue
