The baby turtles look so realistic. The artwork is beautiful, and the online photos do not do it justice. I was so impressed that it is made of shells and sand, yet there is no sign whatsoever of glue! Just gorgeous!

This lovely 3D effect picture reminds me of my childhood friend & I. So it is very special.

I especially like the 3d effect of this picture hanging on the wall, it is much more realistic than just seeing it on line.

"Dear Michaela!
Just to let you know that we are so pleased with your picture. It looks absolutely fantastic on our wall. It is so amazing that you managed to catch each grandchild’s personality without knowing anything about them. We are thrilled. Thank you very much Michaela.

I have had a lifelong passion for art and nature and I wanted to blend the two together, to create a unique way to showcase and preserve what so many of us take for granted. I describe my art as “Working with Nature” and the natural materials I use are whole seashells, different types of sand, wood, stones, feathers, moss and more. Because sea and sky cannot be realistically replicated otherwise – I combine these natural materials with my painting skills.

This is my story. About 10 years ago I had some ideas for a new kind of art using seashells and sand blended with acrylic painting; to form realistic 3-dimensional images on box canvases; wrapping the design around the sides to enhance their 3D feel and effect.

Although I am a British citizen, I have been living and working on the beautiful Greek Island of Crete, for the past 8 years. I decided to see if my art would sell and so I set up a stall at the edge of the beach in a little resort called Almyrida – and haven’t looked back since! I have held yearly exhibitions on the Harbour Front in Chania and have completed many commissions for people who have holiday villas in the Apokoronas area of NW Crete. So I now have 8 full years of sales history which charts the success and popularity of my unique style of art. The international public feedback I have received has been very positive and encouraging. I’ve received so many compliments and congratulations over the years and I know that my art, unlike Pebble Art - is not created by anyone else but me!

I have always loved seashells. In my opinion and experience – each seashell is a work of art, if you look closely enough. Each seashell is unique – like us. Each tiny seashell I lay in my mosaics is hand-selected and complete – in order to display its natural beauty and design. This is the uniqueness of my seashell mosaics because I won’t break any of the shells to fit the spaces. The different types of sand I add to my designs, is a key factor in creating the reality aspect of my artworks. Every artwork is signed and dated on the reverse of the canvas.

I absolutely adore “Working with Nature”. Each artwork takes many hours of concentration but I never tire of making them! A particular design may be repeated, but no two artworks are ever the same. As far as I am concerned – every artwork is like the first! I can promise you this
much - my uniquely styled artworks look much better in reality than they do in photographs!
I am always happy when I am creating my beautiful Seashell Mosaic Collages and I hope you love them as much as I do.
