What is your website?
http://ellencohendesign.com
What are the best things about art fairs
selling direct to the buyer
Best show ever and why
ACC Baltimore- feels like the right venue for my work and the Hip Pop program has you interacting and meeting other artists starting out.
Worst show ever and why
Peter's Valley- not my clientele - although people were walking the show I only sold my least expensive items.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
an artist I met at the Bar Harbor Craft fair this summer
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I love to be spontaneous
