Christian Nevin

My pride comes from my ability to create a final masterpiece from a simplethought and the way it is so enthusiastically received by others.Being an artist was an inevitable process that began very early on. With strong influences from two very talented parents. I have always focused on art as a way to create and express my thoughts. I am delighted to be able to produce design's with incomparable results.

I am proud to be one of the very few designers who have the ability to do their own work from start to finish. This kind of knowledge and understanding of the wntire process assures me a solid, extremely high quality piece to deliver.



I have always been interested in classic cars. I have a collection of 1966 - 1974 Dodge Chargers that I have restored over the years. Two of them have been in countless reference books and on TV shows.

After high school I set off to refine my skills as an airbrush illustrator at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Every now and then I will paint a custom motorcycle just for the fun of it.

My main hobby is to be around my family. Doing projects together or just plain being silly. After all, that is what it is all about for me.
