Flick Palmateer is a true renaissance woman – pro-surfer, activist and artist.
In an interview with the Marine Stewardship Council website, she answered:
You are a pro surfer but also an exhibited painter and ceramicist, how does your time in the water influence your art?
I’m in the water nearly every day, it’s constantly changing, I use water colour and inks because it best represents the fluidity of the ocean.
The ceramics I exhibited in at my first solo art exhibition in Paddington and Margaret River, were inspired by the West Australian coastline where I grew up and started surfing. I chose the colours based on the colours I see when I think about home.
