Local resident creates art from car tire

ALPENA, Mich – When most of us think of car tires, we think of those things you occasionally need to replace on your car but one local resident has caused people to see them differently.  

You may have driven by this house on North 5th Street and seen the wishing well, the teacup or the bunny and wondered who was behind the designs and what was the inspiration.

Local resident, Victoria Rose, and her husband are behind the creativity of what she refers to as car tire art.

This was something Vickie learned from her father when she was a child.

Her inspiration came from a gloomy 2018 winter which prompted her to do something to uplift spirits.

Vickie says she is gratified when she sees the look on others’ faces as they admire her pieces.
