About

Seaglass collecting is my hobby and graphic design is my profession. Etched by the Sea is the combination of these two loves, and I hope you enjoy having my sea glass, pottery, and shell designs in your home as much as I loved creating them!


I create my mosaics using beautifully worn pieces of genuine sea glass. I the photograph them and turn them into art prints, greeting cards, and more. Each mosaic takes a few hours to make and sometimes starts one way and ends up another! This quick time-lapse video shows a little bit of the process of creating a sea glass design.
