Tim’s step by step was published in issue 12 be sure to check it out.
Good day eh! My name is Tim Dubreuil also known as Dubie to many of my painter buddies and along with my wife Shawna, we run our little shop called Dirtbag Customs. For the past 15 years, I have been busy painting anything that will sit still long enough. From T-shirts to toilet seats, custom bikes and helmets, canvas wall art, and home furnishings. We are always looking for new and unique projects that we can put our spin on. Making everything custom is what we’re all about
I got the airbrush bug after watching shows on TV with guys that were pulling off some cool paint jobs on custom bikes. After a couple of episodes, I dug out an old Paasche airbrush that my mom had stored for some 25 years and dove right in. With the help of some great knowledgeable people who were able to steer me in the right direction and start what has now become a passion.
Most of the paintings I do are centered around nature. We live in a spectacular part of Canada where you witness some of the best sunrises and sunsets, wildlife around every corner, and the northern lights come out to dance for our enjoyment. The perfect inspiration for an artist. But at the same time, I like to remain open to clients’ ideas and styles. The goal is to give every single client something original, no prints of anything, EVER!
Hoping to take this passion and turn it into a full-time thing within the next 2 years. I mean, that’s the goal for just about any artist isn’t it?
