Fieldey, (A.K.A. Haylee Fieldes) was born in New Zealand in the 80s. A move to Norfolk Island as a child kindled her interest in the ocean.
Leaving Norfolk Island in 2001 to study graphic design in Sydney, before spending a few years travelling and working as a graphic artist in London. Upon moving to Perth, Western Australia in 2007, Fieldey learned to surf and decided to custom-paint her own board. The rest as they say, is history.
Since then Fieldey has painted dozens of surfboards and skateboards, murals, bowling pins and even a 2.4m remote-controlled jet boat. Her popular YouTube channel Fieldey TV, and blog tutorials have helped to make her a rising star in the surf art scene and her unusual and cheeky wall murals are a popular fixture on the streets of Perth.

The Wave Project is an award-winning charity that uses surfing as a form of therapy for young people experiencing mental illness or social isolation. Clients work with volunteer ‘surf mentors’ who spend time with them in the sea, teaching them how to surf, listening to them and helping them have fun.
The aims of the charity are to give young people positive, memorable experiences; access to good role models and opportunities to improve confidence and self esteem. In some cases, clients who are helped by the project become volunteers themselves, supporting other young people. Find out more: www.waveproject.co.uk.
