What are the best things about art fairs

meeting other artists and people

Best show ever and why

Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh. Although I no longer live there, I go back to visit my mother and spent the week selling art to Pittsburghers. They are the most down to earth people with a great accent that I miss. I represent the diaspora and our loyalty to the Steelers and all things Pittsburgh will never die.

Worst show ever and why

Sitting in my tent with a broken leg during a thunderstorm under 100 year old live oaks. Show to remain unnamed.

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

I found it on my own.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I play golf and do triathlons. How many other artists do that?
