Automotive Art

Having customised cars, motorbikes and caravans through her paint shop and business Cheetah Custom Cars, Vintage Valets founder, Caroline Clennell has turned to restoring and customising individual panels from classic vehicles as pieces of artwork in their own right.  Hanging in her workshop is Morris Minor 1000 bonnet (1961), and the latest piece of work on mini door (circa 1986) is in our reception area. 

With a Masters in Fine Art and as a member of the Guild of Motoring Artists, Caroline also creates oil paintings of classic cars. Her painting of an Aston Martin DB6 and portrait of Niki Lauder can both be seen at our workshop.

Please drop Caroline a line on caroline.jaine@gmail.com if you would like to know more, or you would like to work with her to commission a piece.
