This 80's Art Deco style "Miami Vice" inspired helmet was created by Sara Deccio. She's from Tacoma, Washington, aka "The Dirty North"... you'll have to ask her about that one. However, she currently dwells in her personally renovated "skoolie" old school bus. She hopped on a train to Oregon to meet a Craigslist guy (!!!) selling the van, paid the dude, and hit the long road back home. She taught herself framing, insulation, tile, laying countertops, painting, and all things needed to get her roving home on the road. Her pastimes like taxidermy, wood working, shooting guns with her Dad, and tinkering with old cars have much influence on her art. She loves creating realism with bold colorful visuals while putting her own spin on what is perceived as reality. Her niche is automotive art.
