Meet The Artist
I'm Michelle. My favorite thing about becoming a photographer and artist is being able to portray the beauty of ordinary things in everyday life and to create a photography and artwork collections for my clients. My photography journey has taught me to see the beauty in the little things and create different collections of artworks. I have a natural curiosity about life which leads me to interesting places and situations. I believe that imagination and creativity are two things we have plenty of and I use them. I hope to encourage you to do the same. I consider myself a designer, artist, and photographer as well as sole owner and writer of Coastal Art Designs. That way I touch on every bases of my services, products, and share with you my creative process.
I started out in 2011 on Etsy creating and designing one-of-a-kind sea kelp baskets. I had one problem, sea kelp materials are seasonal and the amount of it varies every year or season. My talents, skills, and knowledge to create multi-passions as an artist grew through the years making beach crafts, jewelry, and now photography. I will always continue to grow in more ways then just one thing. I want to take my photography to the next level and start providing services in a range of areas. I enjoy sharing my work and crafts with others to hope to inspire them and hope that they love and will have fun making each new project. That's why I set up a freebies section that is full of fun crafts, free wall art, and more. To get access all you need to do is enter your email address and click submit.
The Power of Photography A tool to visualize and capture images for communications through each piece of artwork. The beauty of a print is that we can hold it up, and look at it whenever we wish.
