Vicki Rulli and Tom Heaphey met in 1998 while working together in Columbus, Ohio, and started their business in 2004 primarily as a photographic studio. Their business evolved focusing on their artwork, as well as some amazing collaborations with other artists, designers, non-profits, and small creative companies.
When Vicki and Tom moved to Springfield, Ohio in 2006 they knew it was the place to headquarter their business and raise their family. According to their website, “with a diverse economy and population, as well as more museums than McDonalds, a Frank Lloyd Wright house (Westcott House), a symphony, bike trails and kayak runs, an active group of working artists, and countless other cultural and outdoor activities, Springfield fostered the type of working and living space they wanted to be a part of.”
Together they created Itinerant Studio – a production art studio creating original and limited edition mixed media works using a variety of techniques and materials that serves the design and wholesale trade. They create everything in house, with their own wood shop, print shop and framing operation in their 100 year old 35,000 warehouse. Usually they sells art to designers, hotels and boutiques all over the world, but once a year they open up their studio to the public to purchase artwork at up to a 90% discount on discontinued collections and studio seconds.
The auction will feature over 100 original and limited edition mixed media works in a variety of sizes, techniques and materials, including recycled aluminum, sustainably harvested birch wood, acrylic and Italian fresco. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Wescott House in Springfield.
