RECYCLED SURFBOARD ART
Carolyn Johnson loves the California coastline and her part in it to be eco-conscious. It starts by taking surfboards destined to landfill – then Recycling, Upcycling and Repurposing to beautiful wall art.
The process is laborious. Scraping wax and dirt, filling holes, sanding and priming. Carolyn’s technique incorporates ink blends, acrylics, metallics and resin – all on different layers – creating a dimensional feel and movement. She reflects that “Just as we change in our own lives…to think about the many journeys each board has taken is very parallel – recycled surfboards are now on a new journey - as wall art.”
Any size is available. These are custom made and larger sizes have a built in french cleat. Coastal art look and feel can be multiple "looks" Carolyn has created. The first is her COASTAL AERIAL that looks as though you are bird flying over the shoreline and water. The second is OCEANSCAPE this is as though you are looking directly at the horizon line with water below and sky above - all at a distance. Very mesmerizing.
