What brings you back to Wisconsin State Fair Every Year?
Participating in the Fine Arts Competition, but also seeing all the other wonderful exhibited items including photography, bakery, flowers, livestock, etc.; plus enjoying all the wonderful food, entertainment, rides, etc. It is a fantastic event.
What would you like Fairgoers and fellow competitors to know about the item(s) you exhibit?
All of my exhibited artworks are created based on life experiences I have encountered, observed or imagined. My works are never specific copies of someone else’s works, photos, etc. They are truly my creations.
What is your favorite or most unforgettable Wisconsin State Fair Memory?
My most favorite memory was attending the 2010 Wisconsin State Fair to see one of my exhibited items, ‘Alone On The Beach’, had been awarded my first blue ribbon, and also was selected as Staff Favorite.
What is something you do every year at Wisconsin State Fair?
Viewing the exhibits in the Grand Champion Hall, enjoying our list of must have foods and new ones, seeing the Clydesdales perform, visiting all the shops and music venues, etc. It’s a great event every year!
