About me

I left school at 16 and when to Art College for a 2 year course to see which area of art I was most interested in. At 18 I had gone to university to study Surface Pattern Design by this time I had passed my driving test and bought myself an old Morris, not the usual choice for an 18 year old girl but as my grandpa had been an engineer, my dad used to race MG’s and my brother had a Dodge Charger when I was 14 it was no surprise that I had a love for old cars.

When I was 21 the old Morris had been swapped for a Ford Pop and I had got a degree in Design and my first job working in a design studio doing textile design, by the age of 25 and after a few more British classics I had moved on to a 1957 Chevy Bel Air which was my daily driver, by this time I worked on my own cars and decided to do a mild Kustom on the Chevy.

After 10 years of working for someone else (and numerous American
cars & Hot Rods) I went self-employed doing textile deign.
I had been around pinstriping ever since I started going to hot Rod shows from an early age but it never entered my head to give it a go! Eventually I bought a brush and some paint and it sat in a cupboard for 2 years! Then I went to Paso Robles with my husband Mark a few years ago and there was a lady striping there and I thought “I could do that” and as soon as I got home I started and haven’t stopped since!
My current rides are a 1949 Chevy Fastback and a steel ’32 five window Model B with a blown big block!
