Aloha! My name is Heather Brown and I am a local artist here on the north shore of Oahu. I have received my Bachelors in Fine Arts from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with an emphasis in printmaking. As an ambassador for Foam Magazine and “Artist of the Search” for Rip Curl, I am proud to represent women surfers and artists. You can stay updated on my blogs, photos, and events through Foam Magazine’s website, Pipergirls.com I like to work in various mediums including acrylics, photography, woodblock prints, screen prints, intaglio prints, and linocuts.
