About me & my company
I started my professional artistic career in 1986, specializing in custom airbrushing along with other medias to produce various products including fabric / leather, automotive artwork (motorcycles, vans, & boats), helmets, digital design, original illustrations, event props, murals, canvases, banners, theme related items, and much more.
I'm Ranae Andress and Wile E Designs, LLC is my company founded in Sept. 2010.
Many of my past clients would know me as lead artist for C. Harris Designs (which closed back in July 2010). Though C. Harris Designs and Craig Stern were part of my past (and we all know we can't change the past), my company and I are in no way affiliated with Craig Stern.
The process isn't as difficult as you might think. Most people I meet with have some kind of idea we can start with. Some even come prepared with reference images. After a little (or a lot) of brain storming, during which I do sketches on paper of the artwork as it would fit on their particular item(s), we'll firmed up the design. Ninety percent of the time these rough sketches are all that's necessary to make sure we have the concept down, but in some cases it's necessary to do a computer rendering so the client has a more precise visual of what the finished project will look like.
From there it's my job to make the rough sketches or computer proof a reality.
My goal is to provide artwork services to individuals and businesses alike, in the uniquely creative and personalized way which my patrons have long appreciated and certainly deserve.

Though I do not have set retail hours due to the varied nature of the work I do, an appointment can be set to meet and go over your specific needs.
Fell free to contact me with any questions you may have.
I look forward to hearing from you.
