What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Making a living from my work. Meeting new people. Creative inspiration.
Best show ever and why
Rio Grande Spring Show 2004. It was my first year going at it as a full-time artist. My first showing here and I remember returning from the bathroom on the first day to find my booth absolutely packed. It was a great feeling. It made me feel like I had a future in the art world.
Worst show ever and why
"Mudfest" as most artist called it that weekend. It was the Thunderbird Artist Chocolate Fest 2005 in Scottsdale, AZ. It rained so much that spring and especially on the Friday the show started. Most customers, literally, had to ruin their shoes in the mud to walk the show. I made $152.
