Heidi and I started our business in early 2017, and had our first show in July of that year in Charlevoix, Michigan.

But there we were: Heidi had whipped us into shape doing about one show every month, and we made it into the State Street Art Fair, one of the four fairs that comprise the Ann Arbor Art Fair. It was great to be in our hometown and see familiar faces in the crowd.

My favorite part of every show is watching folks get hands on with our work:
