BIOGRAPHY

Steven Lloyd has been painting for about six years of his life as an automotive painter. He is mostly self taught and trained himself by reading up on the trade and picking up a spray gun to see what he could accomplish.

Starting with NAPA/Martin Senour back in February of 2004 he went through basic classes like "Color Adjustment and Blending" to "Painter Certification". These classes were just the beginning of his career and served as a great foundation and understanding of the automotive paint industry.

He attended his first ever Airbrush Action Getaway class in Charlotte NC for Automotive Graphics in May of 2005. At the seminar he worked with top celebrity airbrush artist like Steve Vandemon and Ryan "Ryno" Templeton. After the three day hands on class he knew he was going to strive to become a custom painter. The airbrush seminar was the perfect foundation to custom painting and Steven really discovered his hidden talent that week.

In 2006 he started Lloyd's Airbrush & Design and has since then created many works of art including cars, trucks, bikes, and even modern wall art. At the begining of 2007 he was hired as a Technical Representative for Auto Paint Supply Company where he still works today. Steven has gone through an extensive amount of advanced classes including "Product Training" and "Color Tinting" for leading manufactures like PPG and Akzo Nobel Coatings. Towards the end of 2007 he attended airbrush classes through PPG Industries in Baltimore Maryland instructed by Paul Stoll. This class really educated Steven on the Vibrance Collection that PPG has to offer. He was amazed at what he could accomplish with some of the colors.

Towards the later part of August the past three years he has had his artwork on display at the Richmond Nationals Hot Rod Show at Richmond International Raceway with PPG Industries. This event has been a great opportunity to show his talent to the public. He was able to talk with many people about the Vibrance Collection and to some that were interested in the ground metal artwork he has been doing. Ground metal artwork has been a new discovery for Steven since the beginning of 2007. He has finished many different one of a kind works of abstract art. He says that the possibilities are just endless with this technique. His first ever entry to Art Works Richmond earned an Honorable Mention in January of 2008.

To this day Steven continues to create amazing show quality work. He aims to use the best products available on the market and is very dedicated to staying up to date with the latest and greatest techniques. Contact him today for a quote and get your project started!
