A note from the Artist...
Updated Feb 2023
I get a few enquiries about my boards, so I thought I'd write a note about the process. When I do have a board for sale, I'll add a photo and also post it on my Facebook and Instagram accounts...if you're interested in seeing what I have available just send me an email or give me a call. I'm happy to send additional photos for genuine enquiries.
The purchase price varies between boards and how much work is involved. When I get a query about one of my boards, or about creating a one-off commission piece, sometimes I never hear back, and the price has obviously put them off. Other times I hear the comment “gosh that’s far too cheap” from people who can appreciate the time and effort that goes into creating a unique piece of art.
Some of the cost covers the price of the actual board and materials, the rest is for preparation, design and creation. I source pre-loved boards and recycle them. I’ve purchased boards from as little as $20 and up to $100... obviously the condition varies, and so does the amount of work involved in preparation. Every board is unique and special.
Preparation involves doing any minor repairs, stripping off any wax, adhesive etc., sanding, priming and creating a clean workable surface. Small imperfections add to the character of the board, and I prefer to leave the back of the board original, so that it tells a story (shapers details etc.) The other great thing with recycling is that the board is given a new life and doesn’t end up in a landfill.
My art-boards are often influenced by a blend of styles, such as Maori and Pacific design, as well as by nature and the ocean. I will only accept a commission if I feel that my style will do justice to your vision. I welcome genuine enquiries.
I hope you love them as much as I enjoy creating them.
