Alliday Artist: Meet Scarberry Faire!

Tell us a little about yourself and your business.
I’ve been drawing and painting my whole life. I’ve always painted for family and friends, and over the years I’ve gotten a lot of feedback that I should sell my work. Scarberry Faire is my first attempt at doing so!
What do you create?
I create wall art. I typically paint portraits of women. I go through phases where I find a particular genre or subject really interesting, and its usually reflected in the subjects I paint – lately I’ve been looking at a lot of Japanese fashion, which has inspired a few recent pieces.
What do YOU love about the products you make?
I love the self expression, and if something so personal can touch someone else, all the better!
Where do you find inspiration?
Everywhere! I love the look of comic books and cartoons. Growing up I remember drawing a lot of video game characters! I am also inspired by fashion, but the female form is where I tend to be inspired most.

The Alliday Show believes that everyday should be celebrated as a holiday! That being said, which holiday do you wish were everyday and why?
Hmmm….Valentines? The world always needs more love!
Will you be unveiling any new goods at Alliday?
Everything is new!

What are you most excited about for the upcoming Alliday Show?
I’m most excited to see how people react to my work and to meet other artists in the community. I have no idea what to expect, and it will be interesting to see how people respond.
