A cheerful collection of 24" x 24" limited edition giclée prints
One could say cars run in my blood. My paternal grandparents, Bella and Leon, owned and operated an auto-parts business in Greenville, SC where my dad worked until his late twenties. Leon Shain Company was the name. While the business had long ceased to exist during my childhood, I grew up hearing the tales of the inner workings and passing by the building where so much of my family history was housed. 
I'll tell you right here and now, I can't change a tire. I can barely open the hood of my car. Hell, I still call my dad when I'm getting my oil changed to talk to the mechanic. What I LOVE about cars is the look. The design. Watching models evolve and regress back to classic shapes and styles. The history. I guess you could say - I love the art aspect of the car world. 
For as long as I can remember, people around town sold their cars at the local gas station in my neighborhood. I grew up keeping my eye out for what, I hoped, I could snag by the time my permit came along. Then I saw it! A 1990's Toyota Land Cruiser. It was perfect. I had visions of repainting it a fun color and bebopping about town with my big fat yellow lab, a cohort of friends and country music blaring. Sadly, it's safety standards did not live up to my parents and I landed in a Honda (for which I am forever grateful). 
To this day, almost 20 years later, I can't see that car without feeling so nostalgic. I have visions of wrapping one in my designs, loading it up with this baby on the way, my dogs and William and heading on an excursion selling & promoting my art across the United States. Well, I'd really love that excursion to start in the Hamptons :). 
This collection is a nod to my dream & my love of this classic beauty! Enjoy!!
