Profile Information

Your Medium
Years in the Art Fair Business
I am an MFA graduate just starting out. I have been mentored by a couple 5 year art fair veterans
First show ever
Porter Flea, Nashville (not quite a fine art fair...)
What is your website? and
What are the best things about art fairs
It is a much more personal experience getting to actually communicate with those choosing to live with my art! There is also such a wide spectrum of art fair attendees that really provides a unique way to better learn what the public is generally connecting with in my work. These reads help direct how I can further push myself to challenge/dig deeper into those conversations when I create! (Since art is not just a one-sided dialogue ;) )
Best show ever and why
Not an Art Fair Show, but my graduate thesis exhibit, “Rabbit,” because I had the opportunity to be free of the pressure of sales, and instead utilize the whole gallery space as an installation.
Worst show ever and why
Porter Flea... because I was ill prepared and it fell in the middle of a bunch of graduate MFA school stress!
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Jason Brueck (Alterimages) and Kate Harrold
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I also write and make music :)
