What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

meeting with the public and getting their immediate response to your work. Enjoying the good days and commiserating with other artists on the bad ones.

Best show ever and why

Madison Art on the Square. Great crowd and sales. Interested in all my work.

Worst show ever and why

Holiday Show at Highland Park Art League. Lots of build-up for a a show that went Nowhere. Bad set up with no room, no audience and large fee for show. I actually left this show a day early. Usually unthinkable.
