Bill Anselmo

It’s all about Bill!  Founder, leader and owner.

Bill started in the auto body and collision industry as an apprentice under Lou Purcellie at age 15.  Lou was not only a friend of the family, but a St. Louis City Police officer that owned Automotive Unlimited.  While apprenticing, Bill became a master welder through the Boiler Makers Union.  Additionally, he became certified in welding technology and blue print reading at Vatterott & Sullivan University, completing everything at ITT Technical School.

Bill believes every technician is an automotive surgeon and has instilled this vision into everything Auto Art Auto Body Shop produces.  Bill has meticulously assembled a team of professionals based on his vision, education and experience of how an auto body shop should run and has operated as such for over 30 successful years.

Bill is on site everyday lending his vision, training, experience and trouble shooting ability to everyday situations.  You can find Bill spot checking just about every vehicle Auto Art Auto Body Shop performs.

AnnMarie supports us from administration to chatting up fleet accounts and insurance companies.  AnnMarie lends her very classy touch insuring the Auto Art Auto Body Shop world is pleasant for everyone who enters and not just “gear-heads”.

James Phelan

We can’t do it without Jimmy!  It takes not only a love of cars, but a passion for the industry, to run the day to day operations in our constantly changing environment.

Ordering parts, tracking parts, making sure they are the right parts when they arrive; it takes a special personality to stay on top of so many distributors. In-between tracking parts, updating spreadsheets, answering phones and ordering materials, Jimmy keeps a watchful eye on every installation to make sure Auto Art Auto Body Shop is on time and keeping up our quality standards.

Jimmy has been at Auto Art Auto Body Shop for 12 years and has more than 30 years in the auto repair and collision industry.  He came to Auto Art as a body technician and worked his way up to running the daily operations of the shop.

Jimmy is ASE certified and I-CAR certified for collision and framework.

Peter Dapkus

No successful shop can be without a Pete!

Pete is the final step in Auto Art Auto Body Shop’s production machine.  Pete cleans, buffs, waxes, picks up, delivers and having been at Auto Art for more than 15 years, knows the shop better than his own home.

Dave Yokum

Accounting Extraordinaire.  Yet another secret to Auto Art Auto Body Shop’s success!

Dave keeps us all in line and on budget.  With the amount of parts, materials, taxes, insurance, payroll and constant commotion involved in operating Auto Art, Dave does it with a smile and a rev of his BMW.

Auto Art Auto Body Shop couldn’t do it without him.
