Profile Information

Your Medium
Contemporary style of Native American beadwork
Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Gathering of Nations powwow
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
All the different people and questions they ask.
Best show ever and why
Santa fe Indian market '15. I met some of the best artists and new business contacts to help me with new venues and etiquette. Not to mention the best sales I've had all year.
Worst show ever and why
Bell Rock art show in May. It was our first time selling in Sedona, and there wasn't much of a crowd and sales were below $500. Needless to say, I lost money going there. Maybe it was not the right time, other vendors say it's usually a good show.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I'm also a musician.
