It has been awhile since I’ve featured a favorite coastal artist so I’m so happy to share this month Coastal Beach Art by Heidi Peters! As I was scrolling through Instagram, I came across the most adorable sea glass artwork! Intrigued by the creativity of what I saw, I clicked over to view Heidi’s Instagram account. I spent the next half hour just viewing her amazing works of coastal art! She communicates beautiful scenes of love, family, life, joy, and nature incorporating sea glass, stones, driftwood, starfish, and essentially anything natural that washes up along the California coastline to create her beautiful art. She graciously agreed to a little interview so please allow me to introduce to you the lovely and talented Heidi Peters!
Coastal Beach Art
Hi! My name is Heidi Peters. I am from Southern California. I was raised here and love living near the beach. I am married and have two girls. They mean everything to me.
I have always loved art. I paint and have taken drawing, graphic design, and many more art classes throughout the years. I always wanted to learn to mosaic, and about 17 years ago, my sweet husband bought me a bunch of supplies to get started. I started with coasters, pots and frames. Gradually moving on to tables and murals. Mosaics take a lot of time and patience, but are so worth it in the end.
I have always loved the beach, surfing, boogie boarding, and beach combing. When my girls were little we lived in Hawaii and I would walk the coast every morning with them in tow. I have jars and jars of beach finds. My home has a very coastal feel and my jars of shells and sea glass are spread throughout. About 2 years ago, we were remodeling our bathroom and I thought how fun it would be to make something out of my beach finds for our new bathroom. Thus my Beach Art began. Everyone who came over would comment on it and would ask for me to make them something out of beach finds.
I started an instagram of my mosaics and beach art about 2 years ago. It was definitely out of my comfort zone, but I made a goal to do it anyways. What a blessing it has been. I am still shocked and amazed with all the interest. So grateful. ~ Heidi
