The surreal vehicles are now about to be used to front a high-profile U.S. motor show.

All of the speed queen models are athletes, and are made to pose in position for between five and six minutes over a period of up to 18 hours.

They are completely naked except for patches covering their modesty.

Ms Merry then slathers them with hypoallergenic paint, using brushes and spray-cans, partly before they pose and partly once in position.

She previously designed for films and TV in Hollywood, before taking a break to work all over the world creating bodyart.

‘I suppose it started when I went to a rock concert working with an Australian band,’ she said. ‘They asked me to get on stage covered in body paint and I ended up doing it in front of 300 people.

‘I left Hollywood and started to paint bodies and exhibit in the San Francisco Bay area. Now I must have painted 100s of different people.

‘I started initially painting your size 8 and size 6 fashion models but have gone to paint athletes because it’s actually a real workout holding the posing for 18 hours, six minutes in position and five minutes being painted back and forth.

‘I am a conceptual artist and often I am inspired by the bodies themselves by what they can and can’t do.’

Ms Merry trained under renowned body painter Craig Tracy before becoming a master herself.

Her latest work features the three types of motorbikes that will be touring the U.S. this year with the Progressive International Motorbike Show.

She said: ‘Everyone has seen the pictures of scantily clad women next to motorbikes and cars and it can look a bit trashy.

‘I wanted to take the idea of a beautiful woman and the motorbike and turn it on its head by making the bike from the bodies of the models.

‘Nothing like this has ever been done before.’
