What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Traveling somewhere new, meeting 1000's of excited customers, making a living making what I love and the community of artists you find at the shows.

Best show ever and why

Utah Arts Festival, partially because it was my first and it was lovely but especially because the crowd was really receptive to my work and seemed thrilled to have something new in Salt Lake City.

Worst show ever and why

Best of the Northwest. Wrong wrong wrong crowd, terribly under attended, packed up my car in the pouring down rain and paid money to go to the show.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I like big butts and I cannot lie.
