What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Talking with people who love art. Selling my paintings.

Best show ever and why

Ocala FL 2018 because it provided my highest sales for the season, and a big plus is that fair attendees were knowledgeable about pastels.

Worst show ever and why

Coconut Point New Year Show, Dec 2018. Worst turnout ever. Could step outside booth and look in either direction to see maybe 8-12 people. Sometimes less.
