Bonnet Painting Competition Finalist Profile – Rhiannon Murfin

Rhiannon Murfin - MotofixRhiannon Murfin,  20 years old

Motofix Exeter /1st year apprentice VW

How did you get into painting cars?

I thought it looked cool and did it at South Devon college for three years and then I got an apprenticeship last year with VW, through Motofix. My Dad has always been interested in cars so I have been brought up with it.

What was the idea behind your design?

I thought it would be a bit different because it is meant to be an optical illusion. It was a bit challenging to get it looking right. When I was at college for the first time I entered a bonnet competition they ran internally, I did an anchor on it, but that was the only time I have ever tried anything like this.

If you were the overall winner, how would you spend the £1000 cash?

I haven’t thought about it, I didn’t think I would get this far.
