Kirk, another South Bay local, grew up in Palos Verdes, CA. He traveled all over the world before the age of 30 and has lived in numerous locations including New Zealand and Hawaii. As a world class waterman…surfer, diver, fisherman, boat captain…his home is the sea. Kirk is also an artist who used the ocean as his biggest inspiration to paint and draw sea creatures, waves, and sunsets. He contributed to ArtLife’s very first photoshoot and had plans to collaborate on artwork to be featured on a future collection. In February of 2014, Kirk tragically passed away on the North Shore of Hawaii. Although taken from this world way too soon, his spirit will always live on through all the people he met, loved, and made an impression on during his life. His brothers Clark & Rhett hold an annual Spearfishing Tournament in his honor and his friends and family gather together at Kirk’s favorite beach to surf, play music, and celebrate his life.
