Welcome to SeaweedArt and My Sea-Inspired Coastal Life

About SeaweedArt

I’m an artisan, chef and “sea foodie.” An ocean lover at heart, my passion is to bring the beauty of the sea into the home with my coastal style, DIY crafts, beach-themed décor and healthy cuisine.

Healthy Living

Botanically based nutritional, cosmetic and skincare products I swear by because beauty comes from within. Safe. Pure. Beneficial. Vegan certified and I promise you will love them.

My Esty Shop

My beach combing and tide pooling explorations led to a hobby of pressing seaweed and other sea-inspired crafts. Visit my shop to explore my latest ocean-themed “beachy” creations.

Mermaid Sea Salt Bath Sachets

In Santa Cruz, California the ocean is usually cold year round. Since I always enjoy a good salty soak, especially in my antique claw foot tub, I found a way to experience the healing properties of the ocean indoors. I discovered a recipe for a seaweed rich mineral...

Watch as these two Santa Cruz Sea lions battle it out to see who gets to sleep on the dock.

Imagine a Pollution Free Ocean
