A little bit more...

Anything is possible!

I have had the opportunity to put my artwork on  a variety  of unusual surfaces such as:  vintage Ice skates, terra cotta pots, leather flight jackets, a body cast of a pregnant belly, a surfboard, antique tools, interior and exterior murals, mailboxes, an old farm milk can, wooden furniture and ---if they sit still long enough---even people!

What IS an Art-O-Mat?

Go back in time, and imagine the days when cigarette packs were sold in fancy vending machines. Those glorious machines were lost, after smoking fell out of fashion, until being rescued by a gentleman named Clark Whittington. He created  "Artists in Cellophane", transforming these vending machines into Artomats which dispensed ART boxes... Often giving a person their first, fun experience of collecting  a piece of Artwork!
