One of my favorite events each Triple Crown Season is the annual John Kelly Environmental Awards presented by The Surfrider Foundation in the beautiful Waimea Valley. I have been donating my art for the creative image and auctions for the past 6 or 7 years now and I am always stoked to be asked!
You can also now get the art that I created for this years event "Pinballs, Waimea" on my website!

Heather Brown Surf Art Coffee Tumblers Now Available for the Holidays!

Happy ALOHA Friday!

Happy to announce that we have made a limited release of a new re-usable porcelain coffee tumbler! I love the fact that surf art can be with you all through your day starting from the morning time! As a surf artist in Hawaii, I am often rushing out of my house at first light (or before) to tray and find some fun waves before a day in the studio. While I have had many re-usable mugs before, I love the feel of the double insulated porcelain cup and the soft silicone lid with this tumbler. I created the art especially for this limited run of tumblers and once they are gone....they are gone!

Take your surf art with you on early morning surf checks or to the office!

New Heather Brown Trucker Hats Now Available!!


I am excited to announce that we have released 4 new trucker hats that each come in 2 colors (so if you are like me, you can wear a different one every day of the week and have 1 to spare!!)

Surf Stroll was one of my fastest selling surf art pieces as a limited edition on canvas. Now you can wear it too! New patch design gives better color and a great new feel on our same tried and true trucker hats!

Blue Barrel is also a sold out piece on canvas. I originally painted Blue Barrel after one of my favorite pieces, Outer Reef, sold out and I wanted to paint something with that big North Shore surf feel that we get to enjoy every winter (especially this week!!)

Anuenue is Hawaiian for Rainbow, and after living in Hawai'i for mod tot my adult life, I still never tire of seeing daily rainbows! When I am on the road for months at a time, I often look at all the rainbow pictures I have taken on my IPhone to bring a little part of home with me. Now I can wear it on my head and feel the good vibes all day long!

Haleiwa Sunset! What else needs to be said, if you have ever had the chance to spend a sunset on the beach during the winter season on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawai'i you will know this beauty. If you haven't yet, my painting does;t do it any justice, the most beautiful sight and I never get tired of it!

Heather Brown Art in Australia

Aloha and Happy Monday!

Well it's November and October sure did fly by (guess thats what happens when you are in multiple countries gone from home for a full month! ) November is always one of my favorite months too and I am looking forward to this great month ahead!!

October was great, we were on tour in Japan and Australia for the month with brief stops in Singapore. We had not been back to Australia for 2 years, so this trip was so nice to go back and reconnect with old friends and make tones of new ones (we love Australia so much!)

The Captain Surfs and I participated in a few events around Byron Bay when we were there for the week and it was so nice to see how welcoming everyone was to us, our art and everyone else participating in the events that surrounded the fun filled week. We got to get a few days of fun surf, lots of sun, fun hikes and even a great stop at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary !

The first event was a special art show called "Surface" that we were invited to take part in at the coolest little hotel/B&B I have ever seen called The Atlantic in Byron Bay. This was such a fun night getting to see lots of old friends and to meet some great new people! Donovan Frankenreiter and all the kids painted a huge mural and everyone had a great time!

The following weekend was the 4th Annual Byron Bay Surf Festival. We were lucky enough to be invited down to participate 2 years ago and then again the is year. It has grown and become one of the most fun weekends ever! This is the event that brings together so many talented and great people that live their lives the same way we do. Each year we meet so many fantastic people and get to share our art and theirs (music, boards, woodcraft, film, stories, workshops, etc)

Sight at the 2014 Byron Bay Surf Festival
 The guys created these epic spaces for us to display our art right next to the beach in Yurts and they created pallet wood walls for our individual displays.
