Inspiration for his artwork was his father Jim Moran. He was
a Commercial Artist from Waldwick, NJ. When Steve was just six
years old he sold his first painting to an art gallery. This
fueled his desire to continue his artwork for years to come.
After two decades of apprenticeship under his father, Steve
started a home based company; SM Custom Airbrushing.
Steve has won countless awards, winning 1st place in 1997
for his editorial illustration on Tiny Tim in Airbrush Action’s
International competition. Steve has also won numerous awards
for his automotive masterpieces in the Chrysler Nationals
and other prestigious motorcycle and car competitions.
In 2002 he moved his home based company SM Custom Airbrushing
into his own studio in Garfield, NJ. After years of experience
Steve was asked to become an instructor for Airbrushing Action
magazine. After contributing his talents for many years to
Airbrush Action, Steve sought out to find an apprentice and
pass on his knowledge to help expand his company and continue
the legacy that is SM Custom Airbrushing.
Some of SM Custom Airbrushing clients consist of: America’s
Top Model, The NFL, Michael Jackson, Michael Bolton, Nike,
Coca Cola, iPod, etc. More about Steve............
