My name is Aran, I'm a 10 year old Artist and designer, with a great passion for cars

Since the age of three years old, I grew an interest in fire engines, trucks and any vehicles that had wheels. I still have my collection of fire engine toys. This inspired me to start drawing them! 

Cars and engineering are my passion, but I also enjoy drawing and painting landscapes. I started experimenting drawing all sorts of wildlife from insects, birds, to animals such as elephants. 

My love for supercars started to grow, and seeing many great designers like Frank Stephenson, Ian Callum, Gordon Murray and Peter Stevens. Simply too many great designers to list who inspire me. 

This has helped to create so much joy to draw and paint many many cars, also designing my own. Leading me to have exhibited my work at Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2023. 

I have also presented Ne-Yo with a painting I had done for him, of his favourite Dragon Ball Z character - Vegeta. 

In January 2024 I had the great pleasure to be invited to Mr Reggie Jackson's 'Mr October Foundation - Golf Classic' in Florida. It was very exciting as I presented him with an acrylic painting I had done especially for him of his favourite Mercedes.

Whilst attending the Top Marques Monaco supercar show. I had the great honour of presenting a painting I had done of the Palace of Monaco to H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco. 

Great car designers I have met 

Ian Callum

I was lucky enough to meet Ian Callum and his design team and also be the youngest person to join their Next Generation programme #CALLUMNEXTGENERATION 

Frank Stephenson

Frank Stephenson, the influential designer who revolutionised the Mini  and was the design director on some of Ferrari's and McLarens's iconic cars, has been an inspiration to me. I was privileged enough to meet him and show him some of my car paintings and drawings.

About my Art journey

Drawing on my whiteboard 

( all the time!)

Since the age of three, I have always loved cars, trucks and many other vehicles that I could learn about engineering. I remember being so excited when I got my Liebherr truck and all my Bob the Builder toys for my fifth birthday.


Drawing my favourite toys

I had a yellow digger toy that became part of a bigger collection of digger and truck toys as well as my fire engine toys that I drew on a whiteboard


Sketching at car shows

I have attended many cars shows since 2021 and loved to sketch the cars that I saw there.

Progressing to watercolour paintings

My drawing skills continued to get better and I began experimenting with watercolour and acrylic paints.
