Jan Herman replied to Nancy Falco's discussion Has anyone done the Lake Wales Show ?
"I do this show every year. My sales are usually good. My 2d work is textile. I feel patrons are respectful and look for conservative Items that are affordable. I like this show, though as my prices need to go up my sales may suffer."

Jan Herman replied to Nancy Reyna's discussion opinions of Cedar Key Show in Florida
"If you have another reason for being at Cedar Key than selling your art or craft, then I suggest applying to the show. I did it March 2018 from the waitlist. I thought I did a review but its not there? Anyhow, there are lots of visitors, considering…"

Jan Herman commented on Rick Plummer's blog post Old but New
"From sorta newbee (3 Florida seasons) to above newbee: 1) I'm retired, too. But I DID think about it. Started in art shows in early 70s, went on to work in graphic arts and as writer. Shows are grueling. You must love it. 2) Set up will take as…"

"Honestly don't think it's worth hundreds of dollars to maintain a website. I use the hPage.com website builder for mine and I only pay about 4.99 euros a month. That includes everything, by the way. With the domain, custom email address,…"

Jan Herman replied to Catherine Nocon's discussion APOLOGY
"I have just completed my 2nd winter season doing fine art shows in Florida.  My 2D work is all framed because it is painted fabric. Frames are a risk, of course. I win some, lose some because of it, I am sure. My frames would be considered…"

First show ever
Began with thread painting (free motion embroidery) over my watercolor and acrylic painted scenes on fabric. First fine art show in April 2015
What is your website?
http://JanetHermanArt.com
What are the best things about art fairs
Good and bad: Love to meet people and see how my work challenges their senses. Buyers buy from me because they like what they see. Everyone else that fills my booth, challenges my work and picks at my brain (quilt ladies). I'm rarely alone.
Best show ever and why
Best shows in Florida are at Lake Wales and Leesburg for sales of my 2D work. If I snag an award, it is never where I sell well.
Worst show ever and why
I only do mostly central Florida shows. Winter Haven, no sales. Why? Flea market crowd. Also, bad is nearby Bartow (Bloomin Arts). Car show crowd. That's my guess. I do better in same county but other shows.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
internet search while looking into subscribing to Sunshine Artist
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I like to 4x4 in a Jeep and sleep in a tent (but not when doing an art show).
