Josh Marks Hardwood Tides

Hardwood Tides is the alias of resin and wood working artist Josh Marks, residing in Caloundra, Australia. He has grown up enjoying the sun, surf and culture of Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

Josh has always been artistic and creative, completing a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design in 2003, and working in the signage industry as a Graphic Designer and Sign Writer for over 17 years.

Josh always enjoyed wood working from a young age, and started Hardwood Tides as a way to explore this creative direction in 2016.


He creates unique art pieces which combine his wood working skills, resin and timber to harness and mirror nature’s beauty, and embrace surf culture.  Each piece is hand made and therefore one of a kind, no two pieces are ever the same. Respecting the materials and environment is at the forefront of each creation, with all timber sustainably sourced and treated with love, care and attention to detail.

His art spread worldwide, and Josh is constantly working directly with clients to create a piece that reflects their own love of the ocean and coastal lifestyle.

Works are most famously in the form of surfboard art pieces, but also as functional skate decks, home decor art and sculptural pieces.
