 Nothing screams aviation nostalgia like the time honored tradition of nose art .  I have such a passion for it. It fuels me. Every time my brush goes to metal , I feel as if I am doing my part to keep aviation history alive. I paint in the honor of those crews who flew in combat in majestic aircraft adorned with names like, "Memphis Belle", "Flak Maid', "Sack Time" . When I see a piece of my nose art doing a 250 knot pass at an airshow, or see a one of my vintage aircraft panel nose art pieces hanging on a clients wall, I am so happy to be sharing my love for nose art!
