    I find treasures on the Coast of Maine and create art with them.

    Since I was a young child I would spend most of my summer days at the ocean collecting little treasures. I've always enjoyed designing, art and business. I was an Accountant for 10 years and most recently have owned and operated a small cleaning business along the Coast of Maine.
    November of 2017 I attended a craft fair and stumbled upon some pebble art. It was an ahhh haaa moment! I thought to myself I finally found another purpose for all the treasures that I enjoy finding at the beach, create art and make a business out of it! I went home that night and told my husband I want to start creating pebble art. Of course he had no idea what I was talking about but thought it was a great idea! So I went to the store and bought some canvas, glue and frames and it's really all history from there. I made a piece for a girlfriends birthday and she ordered a couple for Christmas gifts. Through word of mouth in 6 weeks I had about 60 custom orders and gifted around 30 additional pieces! It was 24/7 art. When the new year came I set goals and had done a ton of research on glue, marketing, shipping, and so on. I decided I wanted to head in the direction of really creating the finest pebble art.
    In March I decided I was going to give myself 5 or so weeks to put an art show display together, create all of the marketing necessary, open an Etsy Shop and create about 60 additional pieces for the art show all the while filling my custom orders. I met my goals and met some really amazing people at the art show and a little over 5 months after I started this journey I have over 500 followers on Facebook. It has been a whirlwind an incredibly rewarding journey. There have been many happy tears shed. I absolutely love the emotion that my art evokes and how it makes people feel. The support has been overwhelming! I'm really look forward to creating something special for you!!

      Hi! My name is Melanie Enman. I grew up in Southern Maine and spent much of my childhood at the beaches in the Kennebunk area. I have always loved collecting "treasures" that I have found on the Coast of Maine and have had a keen sense for design.
