Los Angeles based artist, Yvonne Mecialis, has always had a passion for science-fiction and fantasy. She showed a natural talent for art at an early age. At first she worked in various media including oil paints, water color, charcoal and acrylic. After receiving her BFA in Illustration from CSU Long Beach, she began using an airbrush. Now this is her primary painting tool. Yvonne's work reflects sensuality in industrial settings. She is continually influenced by the mechanized world in which she lives. Since 1998, Yvonne has been lending her airbrushing talent to the world of custom painting. She has painted custom motorcycles and cars, as well as helmets and guitars.
