About Us

Elena Merlina
Elena Merlina

Even though I'm the artist, following my passion of travel and painting the world is a team effort in every way.  My partner is not only the captain of our sailboat and makes sure we get around safely, but also the best business partner and support any artist could ask for.  We have fun finding "treasure" as we call our driftwood, the process is quite involved but our environment is sun, sand, and water, how can we really complain! 

Our small boat was definitely not designed to be an art studio yet it somehow works for us.  Creating and painting in such a small space is not easy , heat and constant movement are probably the biggest challenges as an artist.  Processing, treating, and storing the wood is the captains department, and as you can imagine sailboats were not designed to be cargo vessels  - but again we somehow make it all work.
