Growing up my family owned Mobil gasoline stations and as a mechanics daughter I was always around cars… specifically hot rods and muscle cars. When I was 7 years old, I began taking art classes on Saturday mornings and would then go to work with my father to “the station” in the afternoon. I quickly saw the beauty in the shapes and lines of the cars in the garage and began to appreciate and draw them.  That is where my obsession with automotive art began. Through the years I've captured thousands of photos at car shows and enjoy painting the chrome and the reflections in the paint of the cars. To me the automobile is a piece of art.
