Art of the Sea

One of my passions in life is art. I was an art student throughout high school and fell in love with a variety of mediums and artistic qualities, especially pastels, bold colors, texture, and life.

Unfortunately once I began college the time and materials I had at my disposal diminished, and I ended up somewhat distanced from the art I had previously been so close to, both physically and emotionally.

But over the last year or so, I was able to pull together a few pieces, rough as they might be. On a whim, I’ve decided to showcase these couple of pieces here. Feel free to leave constructive criticism, but please take into account I just dabble in art, and by no means do I consider myself a professional.

So, here they are:

A piece I did based on a magazine photo. Done with acrylic paint with chalk pastel.

Sea glass necklace, decorated with wire, and held together with twine.

A shelf I sanded down, painted, then decorated with shells from beaches across the continent. Below I’ve included a photo of it now, holding up some travel memorabilia I’ve collected over the years.

If you have any feedback or ideas for future projects, please let me know! Now that I’ve finished school I have a bit more time on my hands, and am looking for new and unique projects to do.


  1. I think art is all about how it makes you feel, as opposed to how others feel. I remember working in Toronto and taking time out for an evening art class. I don’t remember learning anything much, but it was simply those two hours I could take out of my schedule and do nothing but draw that was blissful. I’d love to incorporate that into my schedule again! So just stick with things that inspire and stretch you!
