Collection: Ebb & Flo - Original Art Pebble & Beach Art Greetings Cards

Vanessa Gosbee, studied art in London, and followed her calling to live by the sea here in Cornwall.

Vanessa lovingly creates unique artwork from her findings on the majestic beaches of Cornwall. She uses sea glass, driftwood, pebbles and discarded shells. Her new project, “Love Your Environment”, was born from her beach cleaning the plastic left from the storms with her two children. These are created from the small pieces of plastic which are recycled into original handmade art.

Her creative eye, and message to increase awareness of the importance of cleaning our beaches in this colourful way using the small plastic, is a delight.

“I’ve been surrounded by beautiful artworks all my life, one of my fondest memories is being at my grandparents who had a Constable. I think that was where my love of our beautiful landscape really began. As a young adult working in London I was inspired by the many works of Banksy that were made. The simplicity of his work to convey his messages really struck a cord in me and it’s this style of art that inspires the simple designs that I construct with debris from the littoral zone.

My work explores the link between consumerism and the attitudes of our throw away society and the culture of recycling that is emerging in a new century. With influences as diverse as Constable and Banksy, I endeavour to produce artworks that are both simple to enjoy and have a complex meaning”.
