For The Love of Art

A new series to support & get to know your favorite artists

For The Love Of Art

Each month get to know one of the artists we admire with an Instagram Q&A takeover. We will post a story introducing a new artist each month with a chance for you to ask them anything. 

Each artist will answer your questions using our Instagram story, providing you a behind-the-scenes look at how they create, where they live and who they are.

We will support each artist by purchasing an original piece of art from them that we will then gift to one of you! ⁠

I’m inspired by the water, the sun, the moon, and the stars. My countless wipeouts, my dreams of noseriding, and the feeling I get when sliding across the face of a wave.
