Profile Information

Your Medium
One of a kind jewelry and photo-fiber collage (my photographs printed on canvas and stitched to fabric backgrounds embellished with free motion machine embroidery).
Years in the Art Fair Business
I was a public school art teacher for 20+ years and did occasional shows & open studio invitations. Have been doing shows and festivals on a more regular basis since early 2009.
First show ever
Can't remember!
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting other artists, seeing what others are creating, and meeting customers who connect with, and appreciate, my work.
Best show ever and why
In 2013, a local arts collective invited me to participate as a guest in a one day show. I was busy all day and did better in 6 hours than my best 3 day show of the year; a show I had been very pleased with.
Worst show ever and why
A show in SC. Wind & rain that ripped my tent top off and almost carried the heavily weighted frame into the waterway, wonderful compliments but slow sales, and chain-smoking neighbors (why do I always seem to be placed next to chain smokers?!) aggravating my allergies.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Google Search.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I lived in Asia for 5 years and was able to travel to places I never would have, otherwise, had the opportunity to see.
