What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

getting to meet so many amazing people, be them show promoters, other vendors, or fabulous clients.

Best show ever and why

Huckleberry Days, Whitefish, MT. Because I can walk to the show the first two days. AWESOME

Worst show ever and why

Art Under the Elms, Lewiston, ID Because the description for the show said 30,000 people go through it, yet when I showed up, the promoters were saying to expect 13,000. BIG DIFFERENCE. NO one bought art, if anything at all. And the wind. GOD AWFUL. Although the promoters were soooooooooo nice and there was a nice artist tent set up.

Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

I actually came across it doing an internet search...saw a blog post and HAD to join up.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I work part time at an ice cream shop...one of the coolest jobs I've ever had (and SO much fun!)
