Elena Merlina

W​elco​me...

...to Driftwoodart.co.  My name is Elena, an Italian artist who is traveling the world on a sailboat.  With every new country and culture I encounter my artistic inspiration gets renewed. 

I find overlooked beauty is everywhere.  Whether it's people, architecture, or nature  - most things simply need a slight shift in perspective and some attention to become beautiful again.  My painting medium is the same  - old nautical charts and discarded driftwood get a second chance at life with some simple brush strokes and color.

  Please enjoy !

All Original Paintings

Drift wood Boards - Acrylic

Utilizing old well traveled driftwood is my passion. Most boards originate from old wrecked fishing boats, and many still have remnants of the original paint. We find the majority of our wood on island beaches throughout our travels, and I use Acrylic paints to capture scenes that inspire me.

Nautical Charts - Watercolor

Sailing through the remote atolls of Micronesia without watercolor paper forced me to use a few old charts we had aboard. The effect was captivating and inspired me to create an entire collection of our travels through that part of the world. Most are now sold, but a few remain.

NATURAL DRIFTWOOD​

Of course we can't compete with the beauty of Mother Nature!

So we also collect natural driftwood to sell for use in other art, aquariums, terrariums, gardens, air plant displays, or just as a natural sculpture in itself.
