Beth Shady's Profile
I believe that nature and art meet when the variety of seaweed’s colors, shapes and textures naturally lend themselves to artistic expression.
My name is Beth Powanda Shady and I am a nature artist. I create art using raw materials I find in nature– like seaweed, which is my favorite medium. I was an already established flower presser when I discovered the Victorian custom of pressing seaweed onto paper. Once I tried it, I was captivated. I try to reproduce the marine botanical landscapes I see under water in the tidepools by my house in Santa Cruz, CA, My purpose is to bring to light the many living things beneath the ocean that often go unnoticed.
SeaweedArt is a gift from the sea.
