Spencer Turner calls Springfield his home and is a relatively newcomer to the scene who started slinging a brush in 2011. In that short amount of time, he has blazed onto the scene with some of the most solid lines, flowing designs and outright jaw dropping color combos! He paints cars, motorcycles, window signs, anything that will sit still long enough to let the One-shot loaded brush do its work. One of the other things Spencer offers to his customers is custom Leatherworker. This is an art by itself but for those looking to take their motorcycle over the top, he can offer lines on the tins and custom work to match on the seat. Making your ride’s custom lines flow and bringing it all together so neither look like an afterthought.

St. Louis, MO based low brow artist, Richard Kuehl, has been honing his skills in drawing, painting, and pinstriping since 2004. As a self-taught artist, Richard has blended his drawing and painting skills with his interest in pinstriping art associated with the hot rod culture, emerging with his signature style emphasizing incredible attention to detail while paying homage to those before him.
Richard almost exclusively uses discarded and vintage items as his canvas, making each piece uniquely inspired resulting in a truly one-of-a-kind piece of art. Adding the varied recycled elements into his work, allowed Richard to let his artistic skills flow in new directions and expand his talent even further, playing off the character marks of canvas. His use of classic pinstripe lines mixed with tongue in cheek hand painted images, evoke the nostalgia of the 50’s and 60’s hot rod culture.

What started out as a fun hobby after work, practicing on anything that would sit still long enough to throw a stripe on, turned into the family business after finally taking the leap to pursue it as a career full time. From custom logos and stripe jobs on log trucks, race cars or custom classics, to finding vintage treasures and customizing them into fun shop decor.
