North Shore Surf Art by Heather Brown

Haleiwa Wa'a

I always love to see the Hawaiian canoes resting on the sand in Haleʻiwa. Scenes like this always make me think about the early 1900's in Hawaii and the simple island lifestyle.

Heather Brown X Yusuke Hanai #TBT mural Greenroom Festival 2009


Just found these photos from a mural that one of my favorite artists, Yusuke Hanai from Japan, and I painted during the 2009 Greenroom Festival in Yokohama Japan. I rarely get a chance to paint this big and honestly I am usually really intimidated by doing it. This was super special as The Mattson 2 were playing live during our painting session.
