This is a quick list of questions and answers  about the Detroit Dirty Show and the Erotic Print Store. I'll add to it as more questions are asked.

What is the Detroit Dirty Show?

It's one of the largest annual erotic art shows in the US. Artists from around the world apply in all media. The 2016 event will be the 17th annual Detroit Dirty Show. For a brief history of the show check out this Huffinton Post article from 2013

When is the show held?
The Dirty Show is usually held on the weekends closest to Valentines day. Sometimes the show is held over for a third weekend if the previous weekend sold out.

What is the Erotic Print Store?
The store sells prints for selected artists at the Dirty Show. Attendance is not necessary, many artists ship their prints to the store. The Erotic Print Store takes a 40% commission on all sales.

How can I exhibit my erotic art?
The Dirty Show just opened it's call for art, view it at … Erotic Print Store is currently reviewing work, send me a note if you're interested in selling through the store.

Are only accepted Dirty Show artists allowed in the print store?
No, artists are invited to sell through the print store based on the quality and marketability of their erotic work. The main show is juried for shock and awe, the store is looking for erotic work people want to take home with them.

What kind of erotic art sells?
A really wide variety of work sells, making it hard to give specifics. But in general it's artwork that really nails a kink, art that connects to the viewer to their own inner passions and taste that sells well.

My photographs of women in nature are an attempt to articulate the essential ‘goddess’ energies in nature. My studio work is an effort to take that understanding further, expressing the beauty and power of women using pure form and flow of light.

My subjects are usually women who see my photographs at a show and ask about working with me. Many say they never considered posing nude, but the power they saw in my images was a power they knew inside themselves.

I like to work with alternative approaches like shooting in the infrared spectrum because it allows me to see beyond the visible, creating a more dream like space that allows energy and flow take precedence over place and subject. I've learned to get out of my own way, and intuitively follow the power revealed by my subjects.

I wrote the introduction to the new Erotic Signature book “World’s Greatest Erotic Art of Today” Volume 2, and have had my work published many times.

I run the “Erotic Print Store” at the annual Detroit International Erotic Art Exhibition (AKA The Detroit Dirty Show). If you create outstanding erotic art, contact me about selling your work at our next show.
