There have been many pivotal moments in my journey as an artist and I feel that I am about to experience another one!
My last major pivotal point occurred when I painted my first surfboard in 2020. Since then, painting surfboards has taken over 99% of my time as an artist, allowing me to become a full-time artist and support my family financially while doing something that I love.
While I will continue to create custom works of art on surfboards for the foreseeable future, I feel that if I am to continue to develop as an artist that I need to paint more on traditional canvases. I also need to take on less commissions so I have the freedom to create scenes that represent the feelings, values and emotions that I want to portray with my art.
So . . . how does this affect you?
In 2024 I will be taking on a greatly reduced commissioned workload and doing more non-commissioned painting. I plan to have a variety of surfboards, canvases and prints available for sale via my website in the coming year.
My order book for 2023 is full and I have no more painting spots available for 2023. I will release painting spots for the first quarter of 2024 in January next year to my subscribers only.

Thank you again for all the support that you have provided me by accompanying me on this journey!
