Ngilgi Cave now has an artist in residence, come and visit Adam Stanley in the wellness Room between 10.00am-4.00pm daily during school holidays and weekends.
Adam has been painting and surfing since the age of 6, following both passions, often traveling around the World and Australia in an endless search for the perfect wave to surf or to paint.
Adam spends most of his time between studios in Torquay and Yallingup. With endless inspiration and constant exposure to the beach, Adam is never short of ideas for his next artwork. His paintings are often done best after being up close to the waves, taking in their energy and transferring it to canvas. www.adamstanleyart.com
