"I remember seeing China Made and Chinese people in a booth at an art fair in Rochester, MI. I lost all respect for the show. I wasn't an artist yet (still trying to be) but as Barbara said, it frosted my cookies. "

Hi I'm new here.

I'm new to the art world and I'm excited about it. I've never shown, sold, or displayed my work. I feel that I have a future in art, what kind I don't know. I have been lurking in the background for a couple of years and have noticed how supportive everyone is. I can't wait to really get started and I am about ready to really give it a good chance. Thanks everyone, SueSee More
