A little bit more...

Anything is possible!

I have had the opportunity to put my artwork on  a variety  of unusual surfaces such as:  A live Elephant, 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 cigarettes 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 Art-o-mats which dispensed ART boxes... Often giving a person their first, fun experience of collecting  a piece of Artwork!
