Hawaii Surf Artist Heather Brown releases 2 brand new limited edition canvasses!

Happy ALOHA Friday!!

I hope you all had a great week and are looking forward to an even better weekend!! It has been such a great week here on the North Shore with lots of new swells and beautiful weather!

I am happy to announce that our (Chris and I's) little company, Heather Brown Art, has been chosen to win the Hawai'i based business award for the 2015 John Kelly Awards hosted by The Surfrider Foundation to be held on November 14, 2015 at Waimea Valley. You can find information and tickets for this great event here: 2015 John Kelly Awards by Surfrider Foundation Oahu
We are beyond thrilled to be acknowledged for our efforts in keeping our Hawai'i company earth and ocean friendly. We have worked tirelessly for years to change the business paradigm and prove to ourselves and others that you can run a successful business and be a conscious human being at the same time. Mahalo Surfrider!!

I was also honored to be asked to create the art again for the event. This year's theme is Sacred Places  and for this years art I painted a piece of the Moli'i Fishpond located on the East side of Oahu. Moli'i is one of only 4 original fishponds left on Oahu and is thought to be here from the earliest Hawaiian settlements on Oahu. It is such a beautiful and serene area and I am so happy to work with organizations around the World that fight to protect these sacred places for future generations to enjoy.

The second new release is called "Surf N Sea" With 2015 being the 50th anniversary of the famous Haleiwa Surf N Sea Surf Shop I wanted to capture the feeling that I have when I drive by this classic shop. It is such a fun shop with such great people and just driving by and seeing the bright yellow exterior and surfboards lining the exterior walls makes me happy!

Both new releases are available as Limited Edition Giclees in an edition of only 250 worldwide as well as each having a 25 piece Hand Highlighted Artist Proof Edition! Check for these pieces and many more or go to your favorite gallery that supports my art and tell them I said "ALOHA" 

Mahalo nui loa for your continued support!

Heather Brown Japan Fall Surf Art Tour 2015 wrap up

Aloha Everyone!

Nice to be back in Hawai'i at home on the north shore after a fun filled two week tour in Japan!

MAHALO NUI LOA to everyone who was able to come to one of my shows over the past two weeks!
MAHALO NUI LOA to the awesome staff from The Heather Brown Galleries both in Tokyo and Osaka for all the wonderful help not only at the gallery shows but traveling the country with me to do so many surf art pop up shows and signings!
MAHALO NUI LOA to all of the venues, shops, etc for hosting my shows around the beautiful country of Japan!
MAHALO NUI LOA to everyone who could not make it to any of these shows but still showed so much ALOHA and support to me via social media, emails, etc! I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love most and have so many people around the world connect with it. Surfers, non-surfers, beach fanatics, bodyboarders, shell pickers, body surfers, male surfers, Hawaii Lovers, female surfers, pet lovers, bird lovers, animal lovers and everyone in between that has been positively effected in some way by art!

For everyone who could not make it to a show or came late and did not get to see the new original art that I showed, here is a selection of some of the pieces that I brought for my 2015 Japan Surf Art Tour. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to share! ALOHA and MAHALO!

Not the North Shore, that's for sure! I do love the early morning beauty of the city and the sky seemed extra clear after the last typhoon.
