My focus on vintage, classic and modern automobiles as “art” came about when two factors came together; a mostly male population in the high school art class I taught, and my newfound love of colored pencils.
I had my students do a project of a cropped image of a classic car; a wheel, a fender, some feature of the car that was interesting. I did one too… and that small thing changed everything for me. Prior to this, I had no interest or knowledge of automobiles and no one was more surprised than I when I began to look at them as works of art; as sculpture.
I have never looked back.
