My name is Ross McDowell and I live to make art and surf. I ‘m really happy when I’m covered in paint, sawdust and salt water!
I hope you enjoy my work!
Most of my work could be called ocean art or surf art. I'm a surfer and avid waterman so I love creating wave paintings, fish paintings, mermaids and anything to do with the sea! Most of my work is done on hand scraped, reclaimed, Indonesian teak. I find my inspiration in nature and the sea. I love to let my passion for the ocean come out in my work. Whether I'm working on a seahorse painting or carving a mermaid its all part of my love for the ocean and serves as a way for me to show thanks for all it does for me! I spend hours drawing squid, painting sea turtles, doodling waves and sketching schools of tuna. I'm obsessed and I wouldn't have it any other way!
