Bringing beautiful coastal decor, art, ideas, and inspiration to you is my passion! This month’s featured artist is Coastal Botanical Art by Green Seas Designs. I’m so happy to introduce my friend Emily from Table & Hearth. She is a biologist by day and and an artist and blogger by night! Emily and her best friend Alyssa founded Green Sea Designs in 2016 featuring prints of pressed sea grass and algae collected from the local coastlines of the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific northwest.
Coastal Botanical Art
Emily lives in North Padre Island in Corpus Christi, Texas and Alyssa lives along the Oregon coast. They went to graduate school together and loved marine botany. Emily wanted to blend her passion for both art and science and that was how Green Seas Designs was formed.
Emily and Alyssa collect and study the multiple species of algae and seaweed gathered in tide pools, beaches, and inlets in their respective coastlines.
Alyssa and Emily artfully arrange and press the specimens to preserve their beauty. Each pressed algae is professionally photographed and printed on archival, acid-free, cold press watercolor paper, signed and numbered. They just stocked the shop with new art. Here is a little preview of what is in the shop today!
This is a 12″x12″ print of an original pressed herbarium piece from Emily’s collection consisting of a Sargassum natans specimen collected on the Texas coast.
