I am very stoked to have my art gracing the cover of this years "Detailed Map Of Kailua"!
This map shows, in fun detail, Windward Oahu beaches, as well as the many shops and restaurants throughout Kailua Town. It provides a ton of information about the best places to stay, dine, and enjoy on Oahu's Windward side. It also includes a section that shows a bit more of my work!
"Detailed Map Of Kailua" can be found throughout most shops and restaurants in Kailua (and also Waikiki).
The map will be in distribution for a year, until July of 2015. Be sure to pick one up next time you are on Oahu's Windward Side. They are FREE!
Below is the original palette knife painting created for the cover of the "Detailed Map Of Kailua"
In honor of "International Surfing Day" a few days ago, I decided to get to work painting a scene on my new Nitro.
Since my Element only lasted TWO DAYS (yes, you read correctly, two days) with it's new custom paint job before it snapped in half, I decided to keep a similar palm trees & tiki theme for this one.
My Tiki wears Converse.
I sure hope this board lasts long enough to give me a chance to cover the backside too!
Having lived in Hawaii most of my life, I have been able to experience the magic of these
beautiful Islands. Through my paintings, I hope to be able to capture the peaceful, serene
paradise that many of us dream about.
When I'm not painting, I enjoy surfing, snowboarding, rollerblading, traveling, playin' da uke, and working outdoors in my tropical garden.
But most of all, just having fun in my
Island Dream Life!
