What is Artography?

As a photographer, I have traveled the world capturing beautiful scenery that demands to be seen. My main concentration is Florida, though. The beaches, wildlife, and beautiful skies are like nowhere else! I take these gorgeous images and print them on aluminum which enriches the color and brings out distinct details. Then I handcraft the wooden frame out of repurposed wood and further distress it using hand tools before painting it and embellishing it with antique metal pieces. The result is an exquisite piece of beachy decor that you will fall in love with every time you gaze at it!

Product Details

This piece features the historic Submarine Watchtower that resides in Ormond-by-the-Sea, Florida (see history below) printed on aluminum for deep colors and distinct detail. Then I handcraft the wooden frame out of repurposed wood and further distress it using hand tools before painting it and embellishing it with antique metal pieces. This piece measures 25.5"w x 34.5"h.

The Ormond-by-the-Sea watchtower was one of roughly 15,200 built in 1941 to line the U.S. coasts. The towers were manned by civilian lookouts armed only with binoculars and a telephone, ready to alert the Coast Guard to any incoming threats. After the end of the war, the towers were abandoned, and most have been lost over the years.

The volunteer observers in Ormond-by-the-Sea were part of the Coast Guard’s Coastal Picket Patrol who were on the lookout for German U-boats and aircraft.

The Ormond-by-the-Sea watchtower is believed to be one of only three World War II towers still standing in Florida. The other two are in Stuart and Melbourne Beach.
