Driftwood Houses & Coastal Scenes, Sailboats, Lighthouses, Beach Huts, Original Handcrafted Artwork using salvaged wood, driftwood & beach treasure 💙

Hello my name is Toni and I live with my husband, daughter and Beau my black labrador on the Norfolk coast, where we have some of the most beautiful beaches.
Beachcombing has always been a passion of mine, I love to see what the tide has left behind (especially after a storm!) and then recycle these 'treasures' into my artworks. What began as a hobby, has now turned into a full-time business, and I feel very blessed to be working at something I love every day.

DriftwoodSails is all about handcrafted coastal cottages, seaside & harbour scenes, beach huts, wooden lighthouses, driftwood sailboats, poetry art, and handpainted beach pebbles & shells.

I still cut all my wood by hand, which makes every piece feel truly handcrafted to me. The majority of my artworks are painted using chalk paint, usually in a palette of white, blues and greys, in keeping with the coastal feel to my work. Sometimes though I break out the pastel colours, which have a real seaside vibe! I also like to use words & poetry in my work, they can make a piece really come alive! The combination of words & art is one of my favourite things.

I create my artworks using salvaged or reclaimed wood, naturally weathered driftwood, tumbled sea slate, frosted sea glass, sand, and other reclaimed materials & beachcombed treasures.
When I pick up a piece of driftwood I often know what it will become...the mast of a sailboat, the roof of a beach hut..
I love to sit at the table in my workspace and 'build'. I also love the idea that what I create can end up anywhere in the country (or world!), so everyone can experience a little bit of beach life, wherever they may live.

Thanks for taking time to read this and visit my shop, it means so much to me.

Most of my work is available from www.driftwoodsails.com

Yes, I welcome overseas buyers! Most of my items include shipping costs outside of the UK. If you don't see your country listed, please message me for a postage cost.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of my artworks are gift-wrapped in my unique DriftwoodSails style & colours (at no extra charge !) beautifully presented, whether it is a gift for someone or simply a purchase for yourself. I also add a handmade coastal clay tag to the parcel, just to make it extra special! 😊

The artwork is wrapped in tissue paper then 2 layers of bubble wrap, before being gift-wrapped. Then it is carefully packed into a recycled cardboard box & fragile stickers are added.
