After a lifetime of fascination with all things automobile, Patrick Kelley shares his passion for cars and art. Born in Merced, California, and raised in Fresno, Patrick developed a deep love of the automobile in all its various forms. From racing to custom cars, from Sears Point to Laguna Seca, LeMans and Daytona Beach for the racing, and to the Pebble Beach and Quail Concours, Patrick has always loved cars and racing. About 15 years ago, he stumbled onto what would soon be a new passion, the collection of original automobile concept art by many of the finest designers and stylists working in and around Detroit. These were drawing and paintings of what future automobiles might look like. Patrick felt that the story of this futuristic work that came out of art schools across America and ultimately the ‘Big Three’ automobile companies had to be told.
