What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Connecting with art collectors and fellow artists.

Best show ever and why

Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. There was a great crowd with plenty of serious buyers.

Worst show ever and why

FIMA (Festival International Montréal en Art) there were no serious buyers, I got a LOT of comments about the 'high' prices of the works in my booth (my prices ranged from $50-$3350 for original artworks), the language barrier made communications with clients difficult and the organizations, especially for loading and unloading was basically non existent.
