First show ever

Monroe Fine Art fair

What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

The culture and talent! I was a Parton long before I was an attending artist, and I always love seeing the diversity of art styles and the amazing talent!

Best show ever and why

Monroe Fine Art Fair. It was our first, but the folks that put it on are amazing! The staff is helpful, friendly, and always available.

Worst show ever and why

DK treasures art and craft boutique show. The women that put it on are rude, lied about the level of advertising, and used the show to sell spaces I their new 'craft mall'. It was a horrible experience.

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

I found you on the Art Fair Calander

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I own chinchillas, and I love them! I also love to rescue odd animals from bad situations (we also have a rescue turtle).
