Justin W. Niles
Justin Wade Niles is a freelance artist, illustrator, and aspiring tattoo artist. Justin started drawing at a very young age and the passion never lost its momentum. While in high school at Wapakoneta High School classes were filled with various art classes, such as drawing, painting and art history. His senior year he was granted a full ride scholarship to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He then made a very difficult decision to stay in Ohio with his mother and new baby sister for financial reasons.
In 1998 Justin was blessed with a son. He supported the both of them with his artistic talent selling his art to local tattoo shops and collectors. In that time period he was also a full time roofer with B&W construction and a practitioner of Shaolin Kung Fu.
Justin started working with Sherry Graham as the illustrator for the book Blood Brothers in 2012. He looks forward to more projects in the future with Ms. Graham and Dragon Works. Justin is now married with three children living in Findlay, Ohio and started Dragon Works Leather and Art, a business that offers various leather and art products for purchase. Today his life is filled with family, and his favorite hobbies art, fishing, and bushcrafting.
