Jack Farley's Art Supplies Franchise

Art supplies

creation of Jack Farley’s Art Supplies was inspired by business
founders James Mancini Heath and Michael Heath’s need to source art
supplies for their commissioned projects.  Having no local art
supply store in their town got them thinking.  "We’d travel 1-2 hours
each month to pick up and purchase our art supplies. We knew as artists
that other local artists might have a similar predicament sourcing their
supplies”, says Michael.  "We didn’t know why someone else in our town
had not ventured into the local independent art supply business, but we
were not going to wait around for anyone else to do it”, explains James.

online was an option for them but waiting a few days and paying hefty
delivery charges for the large canvases they needed was costly in time
and in money.  The idea of an art supply store was cemented. When it
came time to come up with a name for the business they wanted that name
to represent their commitment to the exploration of art, humanity and

name Jack Farley is of their dog, a Terrier-mix who for some time was a
regular playful pup at James and Michael’s Palm Springs, California art
studio, running in, out and between wet canvases, leaving paw prints in
his wake. 

The story behind the name: James and Michael had their minds set on adopting a dog and wanting to name him Farley.  Along came
a rescue named Jack and so by combining the names, a star was born and
the rest becomes history in the making. They opened their first Jack
Farley’s Art Supplies
store in 2012.
