I’m an Oahu based artist and I create vintage-inspired surf and travel art featuring our favorite locations of this ‘āina we call home. I’m inspired by the early days of surfing and beach culture, including the vintage color palette, typography, and nostalgia that goes with it. Surfing has always been a part of who I am, from my days growing up in Florida to now paddling out with my twin toddlers at surf breaks around Oahu, Hawaii. Catching waves, spending time at the beach with my wife and twins, listening to Muddy Waters, and driving my VW bus are a few of my favorite things. My creative process takes me throughout the Hawaiian islands where I look for inspiration paddling out at surf breaks and going on hikes. I take onsite sketches and photographs into my studio where I use a mix of acrylic washes and digital illustration to bring my vision of these locales to life.
