“As a self taught surf artist, residing between Hawaii and Southern California, I can truly say the salty ocean, colors of the sky, and that meditative feeling I get from the surf envoke a gnarly passion for creation. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman and her surfboard. It stokes me out that surfers relate to my pieces and “know the feeling” of coming over the back of that wave, with the cool spray misting your face, or the feeling of sitting and waiting for that perfect glassy set to come through.” -Elise Nicole
