I exhibited at my first festival while in college. My teachers and I drove to Chicago to show our work at Black Expo 1973. A year later I was showing the work and demonstrating at the American Folklore Festival on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The feel of a festival still travels through my blood. Some years later I was invited to show works at the World's Fair In New Orleans. Since I was bit by the festival bug, I brought a pop-up tent and began showing wherever the work was accepted; music festivals, churches, colleges, malls, and art festivals. I continue to travel the festival circuit. The diversity of appreciation from people of all races, and walks of life, speaks to my spirit. The works are able to reach a greater number of people through festivals.
