A locksmith since he was 18 years old, Ramey Bekish hardly ever finds himself picking up the tools of the trade these days. More often than not, he can be found in his garage, creating custom works of art for a growing number of customers.  

His venture into the world of art came by chance, after a painting he completed and shared on social media earned him praise and words of encouragement.
