SURTEX 2015 - bee brown

Today we return to reporting on what goodies we can expect to see at next  month's Surtex Exhibition. We begin with Bee Brown who won't be making the trip to New York this year this year but will be represented instead by her agent Jennifer Nelson. If any potential buyers would like to make an appointment with Jennifer at the show they can reach her at Jennifer Nelson Artists  or email jennifer@jennifer-nelson-artists.com. Those not visiting the show at all (like myself) can find Bee online at her newly updated website and her JNA portfolio pages were launched just in time for the show.
