Years in the Art Fair Business

I am just starting out!

First show ever

Technically Porter Flea in Nashville,TN in 2017... but that was more of an arts and crafts fair...not fine art. The Other Art Fair (Los Angeles, CA) in 2021 was my first official fine art show :)

What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

It is a much more personal experience getting to actually communicate with those choosing to live with my art! There is also such a wide spectrum of art fair attendees that really provides a unique way to better learn what the public is generally connecting with in my work. These reads help direct how I can further push myself to challenge/dig deeper into those conversations when I create! (Since art is not just a one-sided dialogue ;) )

Best show ever and why

Not an Art Fair Show, but my graduate thesis exhibit, “Rabbit,” because I had the opportunity to be free of the pressure of sales, and instead utilize the whole gallery space as an installation.

Worst show ever and why

Porter Flea... because I was ill prepared and it fell in the middle of a bunch of graduate MFA school stress!
