Husband + Wife Team
Vicki Rulli + Tom Heaphey
Vicki and Tom work primarily from their Springfield, Ohio studio, but often travel to gain inspiration, work on a creative project, learn new things, eat good foods, and spend time enjoying a new place with their daughter.
Everything coming out of Itinerant Studio is made by hand with well thought out materials that add dimension, depth, and character.
Itinerant Studio is a production art studio creating original and limited edition mixed media artwork as well as custom tables using a variety of techniques and materials that serves the design and wholesale trade.
Vicki and Tom are both native Midwesterners. Ohioans. Vicki from Lorain, an ethnic melting pot on the shores of Lake Erie; and Tom from a small farm in the middle of rolling hills outside the small college town of Granville.
Vicki and Tom met in 1998 while working together in international business. They soon realized they were a great team and both had art & photography backgrounds. Together they became creative partners of Itinerant Studio.
The studio has evolved over the years and today they design, create, and make artwork and custom tables in their very cool old warehouse building in Springfield, OH. Special attention is made to creating handcrafted works that are design focused with sustainable materials.
The creative process happens everywhere. Most often over coffee on the patio but also on long drives into the countryside, or when meandering city streets, or when cooking dinner together. Vicki and Tom live a creative life and are always discussing everything from new artwork, to interesting materials, to form, to process.
Both are photographers. Film and digital are part of their equipment. Vicki favors the tilt-shift lens and storytelling via the photograph. Tom is the master of the long lens and creating mood with aperture. Tom is also the talent behind the printmaking, watercolors, and mixed media, while Vicki explores alternative print processes such as cyanotypes.
