Sid Dickens at NYIGF

I had the pleasure of meeting Sid Dickens, he of the beautiful tiles, at the Gift Show in New York. We've  carried his work for a few years now at Passionflower but he generally isn't at the show so we've never met.  He was younger than I might have imagined and he seemed gentle and kind. 
  Sometimes meeting an artist can be a little disappointing....you've admired their work for so long but the person behind the work leaves you cold, or you realize they are snobs, or not as sharp as you might have imagined, or any one of a number of disappointments. Such was not the case here. Meeting Sid has made me more committed to the line than ever. One of his tiles would make a great Valentine Gift.

  1. I know exactly EXACTLY what you mean. I ran into Lotta Jansdotter in a booth in at the NYC GS and she was so sweet and even kind of shy....
