In recent years I have managed to explore my own creativity by combining a number of my own individual passions.  These include a love of surfing, coastal themes, and a certain fondness for Kiwiana.  Living on Surf Highway 45 in Taranaki puts me in the middle of many of these elements.  I use old, damaged surfboards as my canvasses, up cycling them to give them another new life.  I use Molotow and  Posca acrylic paint pens as my medium of choice.  Each board obviously has its own history of where its been, adventures had and fun experienced. In this respect it is not just a blank canvas waiting to be developed, but also a crafted object already with a history of its own and a new one to be enjoyed.

My board’s new homes include not only NZ, but also Hawaii, California, Oregon, Perth and London.
