Race helmet painting was born out of my passion for racing and working closely with clients designing, painting race helmets. All my race helmets designs are originally taking into account what the client wants his race helmet design to showcase. With some, it’s certain colors, family members, business interest, sponsors it varies with each client.
My son who now works for Hendricks Motorsports as a fabricator in the chassis shop started race karts a nine and we moved up thru legend cars, modified mini’s, sportsmen and finally open wheel modified. That’s where my passion for racing and creating race helmet designs really started, with his race helmets.
I started out custom painting over thirty years ago airbrushing t-shirts than Harleys, cars but found my real passion was custom painting race helmets. And so I found my niche in designing, painting race helmets and have been following that for about 20 years now.
For years I promoted my race helmet design and painting via my other website airbrush gallery.com which showcased all my artwork. My son has been after me to create a business separate from that to promote just my race helmet design and painting service and so here we have Race Helmet Painting. Designing and painting race helmets is a full-time career for me it’s not something I do part-time or out of my garage.
My goal is turn out the best quality original race helmets possible. If that means painting only 5 a month that’s fine as I want to give each my full attention. I practice what I call organic race helmet design’s, the design has to flow with the helmet contours and make the best use of the molding of the helmet. As weird as it may sound each helmet has a design flow that speaks to me, that’s why I have named it organic race helmet designing.
I would be happy to work with you on your race helmet design please feel free to text or phone me any time 1-352-361-3403.
