My name is Fred Wagner and I go by the Internet screen name of Airbrush Dreams. I was born in Rochester NY back in 1961 and became interested in art at the age of 8. I used to reproduce Don Martin cartoons out of Mad Magazine with markers for friends and family, for those of you that are old enough to remember that cartoon and magazine. I picked up my first airbrush at the age of 17 to do some airbrushing on a taxidermy fish that I had mounted myself through a home study course and soon started too experiment with inks on paper. The airbrush was a Paasche H single action fixed tip airbrush, but I managed. After several months I visited a local art store and picked up a Airbrush Digest Magazine and spotted an article about Mark (the shark) Rush who was airbrushing T-Shirts in Florida and that was that, I was hooked from then on my life was gone, I now was controlled by that piece of chrome plated steal with air and paint flowing through it, like blood though your veins. I’m sick!
After several years of practicing and doing t-shirts for friends I decided it was time to give my big shot. In the summer of 1983 I met my wife to be and began to correspond with Mark Rush. I sent some photos of my art work to him and in May of 1984 my wife and I were married and moved to Ft. Walton Beach Fl. for a first hand try at professional airbrushing. I am back in Fairport NY at this point in time and looking at starting my own airbrushing business here in NY soon if my health will allow that. Freds web site airbrush-dreams.com
