Ocean Inspired Art!

I decided to make Christmas gifts for my employees one year to give them a present that wasn’t store-bought. So I decided to make them beautiful, crushed glass Coastal Christmas trees on canvas covered with resin. Small enough that they could put it on their desk on a stand and enjoy it. That year I made the trees in the color of our company and put a starfish tree topper and Seaglass looking tree trunks.

Everyone loved them so much that I knew I was onto something. So I started making more of them in different shapes and sizes. Then color became a factor because everyone is drawn to such a different colors, that people were asking me if I could make them one in pink? Could I do one in black? How about silver? So I making all different colors And eventually started making the trees on glass, so they look like they are “floating” in a picture frame.

Next, I began experimenting with the resin and other things coastal, so I did a few charcuterie boards that look like ocean waves, small ring dishes that look like the ocean, and then I decided how pretty the beach sand crushed shells, sand dollars and starfish look inside of a wine glass, so, I found myself to the Internet once again, looking for inspiration.

Before I knew it, the “ART” of making a Christmas gifts Coupled with the love of the ocean and everything dolphins, became a passion that has become the “heart” of
