DCDT: How are you preparing for the 2020 holiday season?
LF: "This season I am focused on adding items for sale to my website as well as working on commission pieces."
DCDT: What items are you spotlighting for sale this season and why?
LF: "I have a combination of prints and original paintings for sale on my website. Also, I have a store on Society6 that features my Golden Girl and Frasier tv themed art. There are art prints available and also other merchandise like phone cases and serving trays etc."
DCDT: How are you adapting your work or making the sale of your items accessible this year (amid the pandemic)?
LF: "A great deal of my work has been through Instagram over the years, so in that respect not much has changed or needed to adapt. I can ship just about anything in the USA and have also overseas. Also, I can arrange for social distance viewing or virtual studio visits."
DCDT: Where are you personally shopping for gifts?
LF: "I’m shopping for gifts both as locally as possible and also from artists and small businesses that I admire. They include: The Style Plug for fashion; Ron Shelton Detroit for musicians; Greg’s Celeb Art for fun pop culture stuff and Thom Kofoed if you know a major Murder She Wrote fan! The Peacock Room has so many beautiful things. There are cute stores in downtown Berkley as well."
