Biography from International Art Centre

About Don Packwood

Don Packwood's fascination with cars dates back to his childhood in the Wairarapa and the annual trip to the Levin Motor Racing Circuit. An inherited mechanical engineering background encouraged Packwood's wide range of artistic interests.

Many hours were consumed with painting, model building and restoring vintage and classic cars. This interest led Don to build his own 1925 Brooklands Special, hand-making most of the components.

Packwood enjoys a well-established reputation as one of the world's finest automotive artists. He has exhibited throughout New Zealand, the United Kingdom, specifically at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Chichester and at the invitation of the Australian Motorsport Artists, the Melbourne Grand Prix.

Packwood is a life member of the Bruce McLaren Trust. An original work is owned by the Possum Bourne Trust. Packwood is a resident artist at Parnell's International Art Centre and the Champion Brock Experience in Queensland which houses the largest collection of Peter Brock road and race cars in Australia.
