Artists Corinne Palmer
I'm a Fine Arts Painter who has a home-based studio here in Vancouver, The Painting Crow. I was looking for a way to get out of my studio bubble and become more involved in the art community when I found out about Pacific Arts Market. I've been one of the Artists at PAM since February of 2019, and I'm incredibly grateful to be part of the family!
Crystal genuinely cares about helping Artists to succeed and involves us in that aim. The events at the Market give Artists a chance to connect with each other and meet Clients. Crystal also gives us the opportunity to work on our art in the space. Painting in the Market and talking with Customers has been a great experience for me.
Overall, the positive impact on my creativity and confidence is something that really shows in the work I've created since joining PAM. The increased exposure and sales for my paintings enabled my studio to grow significantly. The Market fills a need for both Artists and Collectors, something for everyone! If you are an Artist or a Maker looking for a place to sell your work, and to be part of a truly creative community, I highly recommend Pacific Arts Market.
