2017 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing and Heather Brown Surf Art

"The Cats Out of The Bag! Been keeping this secret for about 18 months already! Stoked to finally announce that I was asked to create the main visual art for the 2017 Vans Triple Crown Of Surfing! I was stoked beyond belief to create the art for the 2008 Women's Triple Crown earlier in my career, so this just stopped me and my tracks to get asked again to do the Men’s event this year! Mahalo Nui Loa Vans for asking me! I am truly honored and humbled! Aloha and Have a great day!" Heather Brown

Heather Brown has been a strong supporter of the Vans Triple Crown, Hawaiian Pro and Billabong Pipe Masters surf events for many years.  Living on the North Shore in Haleiwa, in the middle of the surf community, has inspired Heather to create surf-related art for people and for surf event sponsors.  Her iconic tropical surf art has captivated people for many years, and her unique style of painting surf and shore scenes is distinctly captivating and happy.
One of Heather’s paintings was used for the 2008 Women’s Triple Crown of Surfing official poster:

Heather Brown Releases New Green with Aloha Wave Art Tote Bag

In 2009 my husband Chris and I started Green with Aloha, a line of durable and useable goods meant to help people get away from the normal habits of very common disposable items (mostly plastic). We started with 1 tote bag design and 1 water bottle design. Since 2009 we have made 6 different tote bag designs, 4 water bottles and 3 different re-usable travel coffee mugs.
Well today, I am so HAPPY to unveil our newest tote bag!
The Green With Aloha Wave Tote is here!!
Made of 100% recycled cotton and printed with water based ink in the USA! double sided prints with reinforced straps for years of heavy use. FYI: We are STILL using our first bags from 2009 for all of our grocery and market shopping! A bit stained and washed many many times over the years, but still looking nice and holding up great!
Please abandon the plastic bags, get your self some reusable shopping bags and stay Green with ALOHA!

 Very soon after, I created the rainbow bridge tote showing the famous Haleiwa bridge over the Anahulu stream. Every surfer who has ever been lucky enough to come to Oahu's beautiful North Shore knows this sight well.

Surf Girl by Kaua'i Surf Artist Heather Brown

Aloha!
I'm often asked about the first piece of art that I sold. While I honestly can't remember (wish I could) it was so many years ago before I ever thought of pursuing art full time that I never really thought about remembering those details at the time.
While this piece, Surf Girl, was probably after the first 50-75 paintings I sold (sold a ton of my art when I was in Art school on Ebay and to friends) Surf Girl to me will always be the piece that I really think of as one of my first "real" pieces that set me on a track of working as a full time artist. I painted about 10 studies of this piece and it originally started out as an Intaglio print when I was still in school, but this was the final "Surf Girl" that I released as a limited edition giclee and now as a matter print on sugar cane paper as well as a wooden print.
It is always fun and sometimes difficult to look back on my older art as I see so much room for refinement, but then I love the nostalgia and the more cubist feel of them. Not many of my older images remain in my current catalog of available art, but the ones that do, like Surf Girl, have a strong tie to my heart.
Aloha and Mahalo for the years of support and friendship around the world!
