Gregory Hodge and I met at Sawtooth in Launceston, we crossed paths when I was driving by Canberra nearly a year later. We planned to go surf but time and weather decided to be against that idea, so we met for a coffee… one thing lead to another and we ended up going mad outside Gregs studio all day. We made over twenty new paintings, most were shown in Sawtooth a few weeks later.

Dale and I, thought we would try a team surfing painting in overhead stormy waves in Avalon. It was tough, but after 2 hours of riding the washing machine with canvas, paint and Go Pro camera we managed to get paint on the canvas. Thanks Dale! It was a fun challenge!

Dale and I, thought we would try a team surfing painting in overhead stormy waves in Avalon. It was tough! After 2 hours of riding the washing machine with canvas, paint and Go Pro camera strapped to us we managed to get paint on the canvas. I originally met Dale and his partner Fleur at Cactus on the West coast of SA, we surfed some supa fun waves there together. Traveling we were on the same route clockwise around Aus, we crossed paths again in Albany, Broome (had some fun party time in Broome, some how Dale and I adopted a mother) narrowly missed them in Darwin and then stayed with them for a few days in Avalon in Sydney. Thanks Dale and Fleur for having me! It was a fun challenge trying to make a painting in the storm ya legend!

Mona Vale rip bowl, Dale and I surfed some fun waves on the edge of a strong rip at Mona Vale. I tried a new variation of surfing painting: I used oil paint in place of the reliable acrylic. It did not work in the way I was hoping, the paint would not connect to the canvas. But funny enough it covered me head to toe and my board top to bottom.
