All Packed Up & Ready to GO!!



I’m all packed up and ready to go!!!  For the last 6 months I’ve been intensely prepping for Surtex and I’m shipping everything off tomorrow!!  This will be my first time exhibiting. It’s been a lot of work and has taken some very long night and uninterrupted weekends to get everything together. But it feels great just to get this far that I am brewing with excitement waiting for the actual show to arrive.

Here is a look at some of my pre-show prep work.


inspiration and figuring out my booth layout.


Besides wanting to showcase my work I felt it was really important to also create an emotional feeling and mood. I want people to remember my art, but more then that, I want them to remember how they feel when they view my art. If there is anything I’ve learned from working in retail, it’s that you need to create an emotion association and attachment to the product. So, I wanted to create an environment that would be conducive for folks to easily experience that emotional connection with my artwork.
