EVEN MORE CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR “REAL” SURFERS

Well, anyone who loves the sea. In my book a real surfer is anyone who gets enjoyment from Mother Ocean. I think it might have been Kelly Slater who said “Who ever enjoys it most” Anyway……..I FORGOT TO MENTION the sculptures. Unlike the paintings i cant do limited edition prints (Duh…really Col!!) So when they are sold they are gone. … Read More

Surf Art is WHAT!

Well, I meant no disrespect when i said it. In fact, my love of surf art comes from the days when people parked their Sandman vans and had beautiful spray painted waves on the side, I was always green with envy considering the heap i was driving! NO…………..I love the traditional spray gun surf art HEAPS But i have also … Read More

A bunch of new stuff

Gidday, sorry about the break in transmission. My diagnosis of Primary Progressive MS has screwed things up a bit. My surfing in particular. Thankfully i wasn’t that good anyway. Taking up the knee board ( cant believe I just said that) New paintings to be posted next week (about 5 of them in fact)- And a new sculpture of three underway. Format is moving more towards the Japanese style every day. I think it must be all the sushi i am eating! Stay tuned as a bucket load of new stock coming REALLY SOON

Next Wave

Just picked up a wonderful block of Green Onyx courtesy of a friend and master sculptor Graham Radcliffe of Phoenix Sculpture Gardens.  This piece of stone is the most subtle light green with gorgeous grain ………….wont be a shark………..definitely another wave.  Loaded and ready to carve!!  WOO HOO.

Another day, another crawl over boulders

Gidday!    Well,  MS or no MS I went for another surf. This time at the iconic Noosa National Park.  If I say so myself i thought i went pretty well considering.  That was until the leg rope broke,  I managed the swim in OK, recovered the board in one piece and then found i couldnt walk back up the … Read More

LIVE

hi there,   A proud day.  Our art site is public.  In other “breaking news”  my 45 years of surfing has been a bit screwed up by getting a nasty little bug called MS.  The great news for me is that I can still paint and sculpt the sea,  the annoying bit is that i  cant surf ( at the … Read More

Wendy the wombat

I love this photo, I know it’s not a wave. My wonderful wife wanted a “happy smiling wombat” so I sculpted Wendy.  She was on display for a sculptors walk commissioned by our State Government, September 2014 Samford. So she spent her time with kids climbing all over her.  This is why we sculpt:)

Whats next

I am going to TRY and sculpt a shark!  Hopefully a tiger.  If I can get it I will be using either Chillagoe Black Marble or Belgium Black.  I know it’s a bit unusual and to be blunt they scare the tripe out of me. But I adore the grace, the muscles and their power. The pinnacle of the sea. … Read More

A challenge

Working on a beautiful piece (well I hope it is)  that is basically a pen and ink wash of a large breaking wave at Sunset (as in the time just before dark, not the break in Hawaii)  It’s a rather interesting blend of a 60’s poster art with Ukiyo-e  or “Floating World” genre from Edo (Tokyo).   Hope to have … Read More
