The one-of-a-kind artist and 15-year Army veteran has created masterpieces on a wide variety of surfaces - from bikes to cars, boats and planes, there isn’t a surface he can’t leave his mark on. With all the work he’s done, Joe is now offering his craft and skills to select clients, making his work even more exclusive. He currently runs a private shop that’s operated by appointment only in Prairieville, Louisiana, with his wife Krystal, and is now turning his focus to his own builds with this Jeep Wrangler JK.

“It’s hard to look back over the past 25 years and see so many beautiful rides that I have built and painted for clients…knowing that I have never took the time out to completely build or paint something for myself. With that being said, it was time, time to finally do something for myself!”

Joe and his wife were on a mission to create their own one-of-kind custom and decided on an off-road vehicle so they could go out on hunting and fishing trips.

With so many years in the industry, Joe was able to make great connections, including Robbie Bryant of KEG Media, who helped him manage the build. “Robbie did a couple of renderings, well, several renderings of our build,” he confesses, joking at how difficult he was work with. “He also managed all of our sponsors and placement for the show. I sure am glad he knows what he is doing. This was not only my first build for myself, but, also my first build for SEMA. And we are super satisfied with the way the build came out. Robbie made a dream come true for us.”
