3 Pieces from Sold Out Editions now Available from Heather Brown


I hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to start a happy week!

I have just release 3 limited edition giclees to my website from editions that have been sold out for months-years at this point. All 3 will have profits from the proceeds going directly to different charities that I support like The Wyland Foundation, The Kokua Foundation and Surfrider Foundation.

The first one is Surf Girl. Surf Girl could be credited as the pice that really got my career going by instantly connecting with so many people. This was my first edition to ever sell through the edition of 100 and the 10 Artist Proofs, so it remains very special to me to this day and will always be a reminder to me of where my career got it's commercial start. I recently received back a Surf Girl that was hanging in an International exhibition for the past couple of years. I destroyed that actual piece as it was pretty damaged from years travelling and being fondled by viewers around the world. I re-printed the edition number which is # 24/100 as a 30"x40" piece. It is now available on my website with profits from the proceeds going to help out a longtime favorite organization that I support, The Surfrider Foundation!

The second offering is "Lahaina Shore's" Hand Highlighted Artist Proof #10/10. This is a 32"x48" AP Giclee that has been hanging on my home's walls in my Private collection since it was published. We have enjoyed it so much and with new editions coming out we would love to share the happiness with a new owner as well as the profits from the proceeds with The Wyland Foundation to help protect and preserve the World's oceans, waterways and marine life.

And last but certainly not least, I am going to offer up from my private collection my #100/100 "Wahine He'e Nalu" I have had this piece hanging in my studio since the edition was first published and it always gives me so much inspiration and reminds me that sometimes you just need to sit down and look, listen and smell the ocean all around us, the True Fountain of Youth! #100/100 limited edition giclee of Wahine He'e Nalu is a 32"x40" giclee, there is a slight bump from the inner wood of the stretched bar in the upper right corner (on the side of the piece, not the face) this does not effect the art, the image or anything, just nature happening with the wood and I feel that I want to sell it as it has been hanging in my studio as sometimes imperfections are the most perfect part! Profits from the proceeds of this sale will go directly to the Kokua Foundation which is leading the charge in environmental education in Hawaii's schools and communities.

Originals From 2010 Now Available!


Wow, what a day here on Oahu! HUGE Third Reef Pipeline breaking and the Volcom Pipe Contest being called off for the day because of the dangerous conditions! Now the crowd is all out at Waimea watching some Big Wave Riding!

I sent a bunch of art over to The Greenflash Gallery in Cardiff, CA for the "La Sirena" Exhibition in late 2010 and the two pieces that I took back a while back are now for sale. They have graced the walls in our house here on the North Shore and I am now ready to sell them to someone else to spread the happiness of art to your house.

I have decided to sell these at the original prices set forth on them from 2010 also!

New Exclusive "Waikiki Wahine" Limited Edition Giclee for The Wyland Galleries

Aloha and Happy Monday!

As many of you know, I have been involved with The Wyland Galleries for about 6 years now and they were the first Gallery group that gave my art a chance. I have nothing but love and admiration for the Wyland Galleries and the Artist Wyland himself. It has been such a blessing to be involved with their galleries around the USA, the great team that works with them and to have my art surrounded by great art from around the world!

They have asked me to create a special exclusive limited edition giclee that would be exclusive to their gallery and their collectors. The piece I painted is titled "Waikiki Wahine" The full edition is only of 25 limited edition signed and numbered giclees with an additional hand highlighted Artist Proof edition of only 5. Please contact the WYland Galleries in Haleiwa, Waikiki, Las Vegas, Maui or Lake Tahoe to inquire about getting one of these extremely limited pieces while they last!

2 New Limited Edition Giclees Just Released by North Shore Oahu Surf Artist Heather Brown


As many of you might have known, on January 2, 2012 I had a solo show at The Wyland Gallery in Waikiki. The show was a huge success and so much fun to spend time with long time friends, collectors and new faces as well!
At the show I introduced two new published originals, "Hawai'i Hale" and "Anuenue"
These images are now available as limited edition giclees (edition of only 100 worldwide) as well as in the Artist Proof Edition (only 10, all hand highlighted by me)

Hawai'i Hale (Hawaiian Home) has been a painting that has been circulating in my head for a few years now, I had once done a painting that had a small beach house in it, but it wasn't much of the focus. My dream, along with many others, has always been to live in a nice simple beach house in Hawai'i on a semi-secluded beach with a great fun wave right outside my doorstep. This painting really gives me the feeling of that dream every time I look at it and brings a huge smile to my face as I hope it does to you as well. The original was a 30x40 and sold at the show. The giclees and AP's are now available on my website as well as at the Fine Galleries Worldwide that support my art.

Anuenue (Hawaiian for Rainbow) was an original originally created for Rip Curl for the Rip Curl by Heather Brown line that I have been designing for a few years now. Rip Curl has become such a huge part of my Ohana (family) in the past years and each time I get to meet with them and discuss ideas on the beach on the North Shore of Oahu, ideas just flow like the waves hitting the sand. Anuenue started as a real light sketch and idea just for the design team, but as I got into it, I quickly realized that I wanted to make this into a full painting and as more and more interviewers and visitors to my studio saw it and commented on how much they loved it, it affirmed to me that this was a piece to be published into my portfolio as a new limited edition giclee (only 100 worldwide) as well as an Artist Proof edition of only 10 hand highlighted pieces. The original sold at the show.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we all have because you can not look at a rainbow with a frown!
