Our inspiration at Coastal art co. comes from a deep love for the ocean and a passion for art. It all started with Sherry, who would spend countless hours at local coves with her beloved puppy, Josie, collecting colorful pebbles and creating basic designs. The journey took a more meaningful turn when Sherry began designing pieces to adorn her coffee/wine bar and asked her husband, John, to craft wooden barn frames for them. In August 2022, she created a beautiful piece of a fly fisherman for John, but tragedy struck when he had a cardiac arrest the very next day. Amidst the uncertainty and fear, Sherry placed the artwork in John’s hospital window as a symbol of hope. Throughout their time at Maine Medical, the remarkable medical care they received and the appreciation from caring staff for the art piece highlighted its significance. While caring for John, Sherry channeled her energy into designing their logo and website, along with more exquisite art pieces. John’s miraculous recovery allowed him to return to work as a Geologist and become a part-time craftsman, creating custom wood frames that complement their mosaic pebble art. We are both thrilled that everyone who encounters our art loves it as much as we adore creating it. Our journey has taught us that art can be a beacon of hope and joy, and it fuels our commitment to continue spreading beauty through our unique creations.
