Fern Levack is an Australian artist who recently had a solo exhibition called Aloha Vol. 8 at the famed Greenroom Gallery in Hawaii.

Fern is passionate about the hand drawn and hand made in this age of 'electrickery’. Her work is heavily influenced by the 70’s and her wild and free childhood growing up on the pristine north coast of Australia.

She obsessively illustrates and embroiders a fantastical world in which surfers and environmental activists win the battle over developers and corporate giants.

She is a storyteller celebrating surfing's eccentric landscape of characters, revolutionary areas, mind blowing design and coastal politics.

Fern’s exhibition featured painting and drawing on paper and canvas, hand embroideries and needlepoint that celebrate surfing in the 70’s in Hawaii, California and Australia.

A lot of the images in Fern’s work are Inspired by Gerry Lopez and surfing's positive impacts on the earth.
