What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

A chance to put my work out there directly with the public. I enjoy talking to people and seeing their reaction to my work. I always feel invigorated. So far I have not felt the need to sell my work online. I like to meet the people who buy my work.

Best show ever and why

So far my best shows have been with a local artist guild group. We put on 2 major shows a year. However I feel that I have saturated the local market and need to get out of the area.

Worst show ever and why

Colorfest in Thurmont, MD. Huge number of people come to the show but definetly not my demographics. Too County Crafty. Met some nice folks but terrible sales. Learned a lot.

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

I think I found your site through a web search. Looking for reviews on potential shows to help me pick the right ones to participate in.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I quit my high paying corporate job to allow time to do my art.
