Profile Information

FLORIDA hand made craft/artists & food vendors only. That is: hand crafted, created and produced. No resale. Are you an artist/crafter who does shows or a show producer? If so, leave a very long, very detailed description to be accepted. You can read this page for free, joining gets you emails--sometimes excessive--about shows as they are posted.
I'm a Native Florida Folk artist selling tiki bar signs, mermaids and more. I work as I can with found and drift wood. My work is hung on a rope though sometimes I do stick signs. I do custom and personalized signs sometimes when I'm set up to show. I like to get my work in bars, restaurants, hardware stores, baitshops -- anywhere real FUN people gather. I call my genre "Merry-time" art.

I started this network because as a Folk artist who displays on old found ladders and cast off things from strawberry fields I'm not considered for "white tent" art shows. They say I do not have a display. Additionally I think $295 is too much for a show that you don't have a relationship with. I lost my mind at the Mainsail Art Fest when I saw that boring field of white tents and every other artist was honest to God selling the SAME RED DOOR photograph. That's not art-that's Wal-mart with tent hooks.

When I set up, I'm not just an artist--I'm entertainment. Andy Warhol said the highest art was selling your work.

I agree. I do.
Website address required. If you do not have one--consider Etsy, eBay or a blog where you post your images, work and show calendar.

Website is still a WIP. etsy store is loc jewlery is on there. I have 3 retail spots that carry my stuff. A Little Touch of Color at Johns Pass Village, Eve N Odd Gallery in Downtown St. Pete 600 block and Dollylocks Salon on 9th St. in St. Pete. I really really want to do Gulfport Artwalk. Broke as a joke at the moment tho. If I can get my tax money back quick, then I can move forward with some shows.


It was funny, I was actually driving behind you once on 275, not too long ago. Made me laugh.
