My name is James Coleman but everyone knows me as Keith. I'm a plumber by trade, but I have been doing custom cars and motorcycles since the early 70's. I've always been interested in doing radical custom work on cars and motorcycles. I worked as a plumber for 30 years, and have also had cars and motorcycles as a passionate hobby while being a single parent raising my daughter. I got laid off from plumbing in 2002 and I would have to say it was one of the best things that ever happened to me. I didn't have a lot of extra money to buy Christmas gifts that year so I decided to make gifts from scrap metal for my family. The response was incredible. From there, I've been showing pieces in several galleries and have sold many large landmark pieces in Detroit area. Art, along with custom cars has been my full time job since.
