My name is Michelle Abbott, I live in Kennesaw, Georgia, USA.
Marissa, born in 1981, is a successful award winning international artist from the Netherlands.
At eighteen I wanted to become a sculptor, but I didn’t feel ‘artsy’ enough and turned to a career in the office. Ten years later I studied as a make-up artist on the side and tried my first bodypainting. It would take six more years to get to my first contest, but that seeded the spark of the bodypaint virus. Your model is like a three-dimensional canvas (no disrespect!) and that’s how my brain likes to perceive art, I guess. Like a sculptor.
I was first inspired by airbrushing when I was 16 and saw HR Giger and Boris Vallejo’s work.
I am Sophie Michele Jacques, AKA Frankenfreckle Kustoms.
I’m Shirley Taylor from Batavia, New York, USA. I have been in the Kustom Culture World for about ten years.
Working on pinstriping keeps me mindful, focused, and calm by the time I'm done with my art, I get a lot of energy from my work. It makes me want to keep doing it again and again.
My name is Stefanie Lizet Murga, aka “Stef”.
Every piece of my art is made from inspiration. I have a passion to try new things using various techniques on different objects besides canvas. I like to paint on clothes, helmets and shoes which is different to what I was taught in the art program at tertiary level.

My Experiences with Coloured Pencil Art
Michael Rose first discovered his artistic ability at the young age of 5 when he won a primary school competition for a painting he created. He started his professional art career in 1994 as a tattoo artist in North London.
My name is Jack Campbell, a.k.a Twisted. I have been in the custom painting industry for 17 years. My interest for it began when I was around 14 and was introduced to a group of guys who all had bagged mini trucks and blazers and I immediately became obsessed.
I love that my marker rendering connects with people. The art sparks conversation about people's memories, they emotionally connect with the car or bike and then a drawing gives them the chance to share their memories.
Monarch Butterfly Step by Step
East Coast Airbrush
Twenty one years ago I left a perfectly good job to go full time as a self employed airbrush artist. What could possibly go wrong?
A proud child of the 70’s, color addict, artist to my core and lover of 1960-70’s culture.
I grew up with a passion for cars and motorcycles since I was 3 years old, at that age I was able to name every single car in the world just by looking at the emblem.
Andy de Bruin
I am a graphics artist living in the Netherlands. I'm a self-taught artist and I've done a lot in the field of 3D modeling and printing. Until 3 years ago I had never done anything like drawing, painting or let alone airbrushing.
