I find it hard to believe myself but yes, my husband tricked me into loving classic cars! (Can anyone relate to that situation...? ) So, as a professional artist, I've been painting Classic & Vintage cars for a while. Thought I'd share some of my work with you.

Hope you enjoy the paintings - and - if you want to immortalise your pride & joy - I ship worldwide! More images are here: IrinaKuksova.ie

Nice! Very nice. Looking at your site, I see you almost have a fetish for old VW's.

Little worried that you're actually a canoe. But hopefully you're real.

Thanks!

LOL, I am a canoe in a way - sailed from Moscow to Milan and now permanently docked in Dublin, Ireland. Hope to visit the States at some stage - sooo many beautiful cars on this site!

There aren't many American cars in Ireland. The island is too small to maneuver a big car , so they keep'em still in private museums like this 1915 Locomobile: Image

And yeah, old VW's are huge!

Welcome to the neighborhood, Irina.

"Canoe" is the local slang for a sales-related post from someone who doesn't advertise with us online or in our print magazine. Technically, your first post violates that rule but we'll let it slide since you're new around here and are posting things relevant to the community.

Of course, if you'd like to advertise your art for sale, we have lots of options to help you spread the word.

Thank you for keeping my post. I'll keep posting stuff related to car art and car shows in Ireland&UK, if you guys are up for it :)

Like that portmarnock painting.

So, as the owner of a Triumph Spitfire, I'm curious to know if you've done any paintings of one of them. I figure what you have on your web site is only a small segment of what you've done.

Thanks - Portmarnock is one of my favourites too - got in on my business card as well.

No Triumph Spitfire in my collection yet. It's a beautiful car, so I'm sure it'll be on the list soon. Which year is your Triumph?

It's true that not all work is on the site. I only keep the latest work on it as the quality of earlier work would give you a wrong impression of my detailing standard . Also, some of the commissioned work is a gift for an even yet to happen. I keep those a secret as well

That's beautiful! What else do you typically paint?
