I am a 21-year-old surfer/ artist from Pacific Beach, San Diego. I've been drawing since before I can remember. Lately I've been painting a lot of mermaids, sailors, and surf inspired pieces with an art nouveau feel to them. When I'm not painting, I surf. I compete in surf contests all up and down the coast -- surfing against some of the world’s best women longboarders. Just recently I have started shaping surfboards and have finished my very first surfboard through Shaper Studios. I attribute my love for style and surfing to my upbringing. I'm constantly inspired by my father Masi Saili, shaper/ surfer as well as my grandfather Larry Gordon, local legend and owner of Gordon and Smith surfboards.
