Throughout my life, art has played a large part in expressing who I am. I got into RC’s for the first time back in 1978 and back in 2009. However, starting a career in the tech field required a lot of hours( not to mention the addition of kids) and I had to put my beloved RC’s literally and figuratively “on the shelf.” As soon as the dust settled, I began painting bodies, discovering that I could marry my two loves: RC’s and art into something I could have a lot of fun with. I currently work in the tech field as a visual designer. Even though I have to use a computer, as opposed to a paintbrush or spray can, I still utilized my artistic skills. Much of my work requires painstaking obsession with detail and quality. So I easily transitioned those talents to create patina bodies for RC’s. At first, I was just painting patina bodies for my own cars; it was just a way of me to relax and work with my hands to create art. One day, someone who viewed my work told me that my work was amazing and there was a huge market for patina RC’s. So I started RC PATINA GUY..and the rest is history!
