Banyan Surfer

Banyan Surfer 24 x 40 inch canvas

This is a fairly recent creation that has already picked up a fair bit of attention and a few sales. I was moved to photograph this picture of a Banyan tree in Honolulu one afternoon. So many roots growing around the outside of this tree gave it a very unusual look, which in turn inspired [...]

I first got to know about this cool 4 piece band called Animal Liberation Orchestra (ALO for short) from the San Francisco area back in 2007 when I toured with them as well as Matt Costa, G Love and Donavon through Brazil for the Alma Surf movie, music and art festival. I’d never heard of [...]

I’ve traveled to Tahiti numerous times over the years and it’s always an astonishingly beautiful place to visit. Many first time visitors will agree that it’s much like what one imagines Hawaii being like 100 years ago. Life is a simple contented existence on the land for many Tahitians, particularly out in the country areas. [...]

Sydney - Surf City 3

Folks, I’ve dabbled a little bit here and there with photoshop over the years, but what I like to do is create amazing scenes that you wouldn’t otherwise ever see. Scenes that are quite obviously not real, to most folks, but always ultimately compelling to look at for most everyone. It started a few years [...]
