I create wooden boxes, tables, mirrors and accessories and use them as the 'canvas' for my thoughts and imagery. Onto these objects I impress my designs with black pigment. Some are adorned with silk, beads and assorted ephemera.
My TattooDreams are becoming tomorrows heirlooms with todays edge and are being collected by celebrities and private collectors alike.

About

Hand built story boxes embellished with iconic images of modern culture.

TattooDreams was born out of experimentation.

I love paint. 
There was something very taboo about putting paint on fine wood.
The immediacy.
The permanence.

Handmade boxes, mirrors, vessels and furniture
 emblazoned with paint, beads and ephemera come to life in our studio.

We are a husband and wife team who create and sell TattooDreams.
 We sell to very few galleries, so it is us you will see at shows across the country.
 We've worked together as a collaborative team for 26 years.

Words, images and patterns envelope utilitarian objects and transform them into one of kind art pieces. The designs we use are uplifting and personal and the viewer turns into the collector by finding the piece that calls to them. It's all about passion and playfulness and celebrating the images which are in our dreams. They come to life in this body of work looking like tattoos on wood - thus the name, TattooDreams.

Our boxes and larger vessels are sometimes used to hold loved ones cremains. These memorial urns are personalized and often begin the healing process in an artful way.

We invite you to explore our unique style. Thank you and... enjoy!

    I've been an artist all my life. These TattooDreams are an important part of my journey. Please explore my offerings and find the piece that calls to you.

  • Jon Hecker

    Maker

    I've always been drawn to building things. These tapered boxes and larger vessels provide a cathartic release for me to 'build beyond the box'. I employ extensive use of home made jigs to facilitate my process. Every piece is built one at a time.

    He spends his mornings answering e-mail, preparing shipping labels and prodding Jon and Pat to supply him with info for the next Etsy item to list. He works for catnip and treasures the warm keyboard when nap time calls.
