The guild for creative automotive art


The Guild of Motoring Artists (GMA) was established in 1986 as a group of professional and semi-professional artists, who shared a common interest in automotive art. Over the years it has attracted some of the best and diverse worldwide automotive artists through its selective membership, exhibiting around the UK with invitational exhibitions in the USA.


Bill Pack - a renowned artist and entrepreneur known for his automotive photography and as the CEO of the V12 Enterprises Studio based in Phoenix AZ, which he founded in 2013. He began his career as an advertising photographer winning numerous awards.

Bill has shown and sold his work at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, the Audrain Concours d’Elegance in Rhode Island and the famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance over the past 5 years.

His work was featured at the Phoenix Art Museum for the 2019 exhibition ‘Legends of Speed’.

Bill has published three books, including ‘Epic Drama’ featuring 34 winning race cars for the Indianapolis Speedway Museum.

His work can be seen at


Steve Goodwin - has worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for over 35 years. He has a particular interest in motoring subjects and his work in this area is relief printing, a method where the image is drawn (backwards) on a smooth block of material, and the non-printing part of the image is carved away. The surface of the block is inked and transferred to paper. Each colour in an image is a separate carving.

His interest in motor sport goes back almost 40 years. He has been active as an organiser, marshal, and occasional competitor and is also a classic car owner.


Jonny Ambrose - creates contemporary automobile sculptures. His works celebrate automotive artistry with graceful abstraction, inspired by aerodynamic forms and imagined airflow. He has recently created commissions for Morgan, MG, and Porsche Club Motorsport, and been a featured artist by Porsche and Aston Magazines. His sculpture trophies have been created for The Quail US concours since 2017, as the Octane award and has exhibited across Europe, the Historic Motoring Awards, Goodwood, and invited annually to the Royal Automobile Club exhibitions. Jonny’s artworks combine traditional steam-bent wood craftsmanship with digital design processes, involving wood, CNC milled metal and Carbon Fibre. His works are coveted by international collectors from the Americas to Africa, Japan and Australia. He graduated in Fine Art Sculpture 1994, was 1995 BRDC Young Artist Prize runner up, and has since exhibited in Paris, California, London, Stuttgart, Frankfurt and Glasgow.

After a 25 year career in the City, Jon Stevenson decided to pursue his passion for art and all things automotive by becoming a full time automotive artist. Focussing on Porsche, but with a love of many classics, including Alfa Romeo and Lancia, Jon typically works on a larger scale (1m x 1m and larger) in acrylic on canvas.  Jon looks for interesting angles, reflections and moments, to emphasise particular design features and create art that is visually impactful and true to the subject.  Jon also has a passion for depicting historic motor racing and regularly attends the Goodwood Revival and Members Meeting.


Richard Neergaard - GMA Chairman and with a clear vision for the future of the Guild.

Amazing, impactful art can stop an audience in its tracks - but there must be beauty, not just shock or a dramatic statement. It’s Richard’s goal to create this in his unique automotive art.

To achieve both curiosity and beauty for the audience, he integrates original pieces from famous race cars, exotics, and classic cars.  These pieces give meaning and a sense of history while the rest of the art provides an unusual framework.  Most are made with aluminium panels which are laser cut, CNC bent and anodised.  A high quality photo is then laminated, computer calculated and plotter cut to fit exactly on the panels and screwed into an acrylic gloss back panel.  

Richard has works in the British Motor Museum, the Los Angeles Driving Museum, the Jaguar Heritage Trust museum, the Williams F1 museum, Alfa Romeo F1, McLaren F1 and Williams F1 headquarters and exhibited at the Royal Automobile Club in London, Salon Prive at Blenheim Palace and sold at Bonhams Aston Martin Classics auction.


David Ginn - Founding member and former GMA Chairman David has been practicing art all his life being largely self-taught. Throughout the 1980’s David set up his own successful commercial art studio, which included producing a huge variety of art and design related projects.

Since then David has worked in the automotive design and product development sector, with Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin.

He remains a prolific artist covering a wide range of subject matters.


Sean Wales - With a Fine Art Diploma and studying Visual Arts Sean is a key member of the Guild Committee. He’s worked on murals in a German shopping complex, worked at a number of sporting venues in the UK including Newmarket Race Course, Chelsea Football Club, Rockingham Motor Speedway and Silverstone Circuit (where he was Deputy General Manager of Silverstone Hospitality). Sean started to paint portraits of winning Formula 1 drivers. The large pieces painted in acrylic proved popular amongst the fans and have become a firm staple of his portfolio. Now moving into different media such as felt tips and inks Sean has become more prolific than ever.


David Purvis - Former GMA Chairman and current Administrator, David’s been a member for 25 years having exhibited with them in the USA, and throughout the UK. A prolific artist with many motoring themed commissions, also a successful local artist producing scenes around where he lives.  David has donated his images to illustrate the Lions charity town calendars that he has produced for a number of years. He is also Gallery Manager of a local gallery.


Born in Liverpool, Dave O’Brien’s passion for mosaic art was first founded during a holiday to Barcelona and seeing Antoni Gaudi’s Park Guell. Dave makes mosaics that are influenced by his own passions such as iconic music album covers, fine works of art, rare racing cars, vintage posters and iconic buildings.  His attention to detail, discipline and patience are paramount in producing each artwork. Every mosaic work is totally unique and made with great attention to detail.

Working mainly under the name of ‘Big & Small Mosaics’, O’Brien has made some recent BBC television appearances on shows including ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ and DIY SOS, both hosted by Nick Knowles. Dave’s work is now going from strength to strength and he is being exhibited by a wide variety of galleries and held in private collections across the U.K. Europe and U.S.A.


Brian Casey - With more than 30 years’ experience as a self-taught Fine Art Motoring and Motorsport Illustrator, Brian’s intricate works are produced using graphite/coloured pencils and watercolours. Motorsport has been a passion of mine since growing up within earshot of the famous Crystal Palace Road Circuit. Brian is also a full member of the Coloured Pencil Society.


Barry Hunter - a motorsport art specialist, a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild and the Guild of Motoring Artists and was formerly the Editor of the Guild's quarterly magazine Redline for a number of years.
