Nestled in the sweaty crease between surf, tattoo and street art, Fieldey paints surfboards and wall murals the likes of which have not been seen.
Fieldey, known to her mother as 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, she spent a few years travelling and working as a graphic artist in London.
Upon moving to Perth, Western Australia in 2007, she 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, cars, bowling pins and a 2.4m remote-controlled jet boat. She has been interviewed for magazines, blogs and websites, created artwork for the 2014 Iron Fist ladies range and been sponsored by Molotow graffiti paints to produce a series of YouTube Tutorials.
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 fast becoming a popular fixture on the streets of Perth.
