Matt Beard …
Considers both art and surfing wonderful problems to have and stopped trying to quit either of them years ago.
Makes art for folks all over Humboldt County and beyond, and has been doing so for the last 20 years.
Draws until his eyes go blurry.
Paints when he gets fed up with everything else.
Has seen his art published in all sorts of international surf and art media publications, including The Surfer’s Journal (2008 -Vol.17, #3).
Makes art that is enjoyed and collected by folks all over the US, Canada, Australia, Europe, and even in parts of Arcata.
Yes, his last name really is “Beard”.
Never liked shaving anyway.
See, it all works out.
