You’ve heard of Jackson Pollock? Get ready to meet Jackson Polliwog.

Recent high school graduate Madison Brass is an amphibian aficionado. In fact, she’s on her way to the University of Central Florida where she’ll be pursuing a Ph.D in Exotic Veterinary Medicine. She also has her own website,, dedicated to amphibian care. It’s also where you can see a couple of her toads, Fefe and Bubba, create works of abstract art.

How do the toads do it? Madison places blobs of paint on a small canvases, puts them inside zip lock bags, and has her toads hop on them to create unique art pieces. She motivates Fefe and Bubba with snacks, namely crickets and worms. You have to stir the muse somehow. Check out Fefe and Bubba in action below:
