Heather Brown Art for the 2016 Surfrider Foundation John Kelly Environmental Achievement Awards

Stoked and Honored to be asked to create the main artwork for the Surfrider Foundation - Oahu Chapter annual John Kelly Environmental Achievement Awards again this year! This is always a most favorite event each Vans Triple Crown of Surfing season on the North Shore of Oahu and it help what we all love the most, the Ocean and our Earths waterways!! This year I was asked to create the art based on the filling in the statement "Long Live ........." I chose to paint the beautiful Ka'ena Point with the stunning Layman Albatross that make this special place their season home for breeding. This goes with the Surfrider Foundation national theme of #longlivethebeach

Heather Brown X Chris Viverito donate board to 2016 Surfboards on Parade


Chris Viverito and I created a special board for the 2016 Surfboards on Parade event in Huntington Beach, California. Surfboards on Parade is an event that wishes to eradicate skin cancer and in their inaugural year raised more than $100,000 and we are hoping to raise even more this year! Please check out Surfboards On Parade for more info on this great event.
ALSO!!! If you are unable to make the gala event in Huntington Beach, you still have a chance to bid on any of the 22 awesome boards available, but you need to hurry as bids are being accepted through October 6, 2016 at 9pm PST. This is a great chance to get a super rad art board for your home or office and support a great cause at the same time!

Here is the board that we created for the event. Chris (the captain surfs) shaped this board from 200+ year old reclaimed cedar that he saved from an old building that got taken down in Honolulu so they could make room for another ugly glass high rise. He shaped a "pre-contact" style Alaia surfboard that I then painted using acrylic paints acting more like pigment dyes so you can see the grain of the wood and feel the piece move.

Check out the full catalog HERE
