Billy Couch has been involved with automotive art for over 20 years with his paintings. His original career path targeted car design as a goal with enrollment at the Detroit Center for Creative Studies, but as Billy quipped, “doing art with the subject matter of automobile racing was just more fun.”
With a flair for dramatic line and color, Couch’s paintings adorn the corporate walls and homes of a substantial number of industry clients. Billy reflected on his clientele, “My best marketing efforts have always been word of mouth and so far that’s kept me pretty busy”
Couch notes watercolor as his preferred medium although sometimes the subject matter calls for a bolder use of color, at which time, he switches to acrylic paints.
