What are the best things about art fairs

Viewing all of the creativity. Talking about what you do. Showing off your best stuff ;) Meeting new friends. Learning about new processes from other artists.

Best show ever and why

One of a Kind Spring Show. The venue is fabulous and this show is very well organized. Sales were good and I met a lot of people who became collectors as well as new friends and business contacts. There is so much to take in from the food court to presentations to the fine art gallery. Thoroughly enjoyed everything about this show even with its heavy expense.

Worst show ever and why

MPTV Holiday Art & Gift Show - 2016 - Venue was HORRIBLE (warehouse in a commercial area), advertising was lacking - more of a craft show with aprons and jewelry than fine art. It was billed to be just that but fell very short.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I'm a redhead with blue eyes... only 1% of the world's poplulation meets that criteria. I love to title my art with classic rock songs. I consider myself to be fun, quirky and I am in love with COLOR. I'm also a revolutionary in the art world creating abstract art with colored stain on wood. Plus a little hidden rainbow in my hair to keep life fun.
