I consider both art and surfing wonderful problems to have and stopped trying to quit either of them years ago. I’m currently residing on the far northern coast of California with my wife and three kids. But all of California’s coast is my home, and for over 15 years I’ve been working toward painting the entire coastline of this beautiful state. I’m getting there, but it’s a slow and winding road… and sometimes it’s no road at all. I spend weeks at a time on the road, living out of my van to explore the nooks and coves I’ve not yet seen. I’ve painted from boats, climbed on rooftops, crawled over locked gates, edged between barbed wire, suffered the nuisance of ticks, poison oak, biting ants, high winds… you get the idea. All of this to bring to you these visions of California. Also, I have a book! Learn more here.
