Biker Dude Made of Sockies: New Home at Midway Village Museum

For several years I attended and exhibited at the

Sock Monkey Madness Festival in Rockford, IL.

Rockford is the home of the Sock Monkey, and Midway Village Museum is THE place to visit  for all things sock monkey.

 During one of the festivals, I bid and won this fun Biker Dude sock monkey and I simply had to paint his portrait.

I am thrilled that this sock monkey smile ambassador will now hang in the permanent collection at Midway Village. It’s a wonderful museum!

I am donating most of my original Monkey Made of Sockies Paintings  as smile ambassadors.

It is my goal to share smiles all over the world :O)

If you would like to be considered for a donation, please contact me here. If you are within a 90 mile radius, I’ll deliver. 

If you are out of town, all I ask is that you pay for shipping and handling.


Huge thanks to Midway Village Museum.

I am honored to have my work in their permanent collection and grateful for their tremendous supporter of Monkey Made of Sockies.
