First show ever

Dunedin Craft show 2018 - Howard Alan

What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

The visibility and access to people wanting to buy.

Best show ever and why

St Petersburg Holyday of the Arts 2018 because it was my first sale of a big original piece and it got me another client that asked me for 2 more paintings.

Worst show ever and why

For me, it was the Art Harvest 2018 because it was my first big show and I was not prepared. We had tornadoes, my tent broke (fortunately we could kind of fix it to be able to continue the show), I didn't sell originals and didn't have any reproductions to sell to help with the cost of the fair.

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

I found it browsing on the internet looking for Propanels to buy and loved all the info.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I am so shy I can't find a way to tell people about my next shows and promote my art... I am still looking for a career where I don't have to talk to people to thrive... :P I "hired" my husband to do the talking for me now! :)
