MEET COLLECTIVE MEMBER - ELIZABETH JAMES FROM PACIFIC AND ROSE June 10 2017

Elizabeth James founded Pacific & Rose Textiles in 2001 after discovering the ancient art of hand block-printing while traveling through India. Immediately smitten with the colorful Indian fabrics, she was inspired to produce her own collection of block-printed products including table and kitchen linens, pillows and scarves. Next fall, quilts, shams & curtains will round out the line. 
 
“Working from my Costa Mesa studio, my design recipe combines traditional Indian Mughal motifs and lots of fresh color with a hint of West Coast vibe.  I design in various ways, but my favorite method is to utilize my collection of over 500 vintage wooden blocks for inspiration. I’ll print the blocks and then redesign the results by resizing, reworking and combining them in new ways to create something original."
 
"Traveling has been a huge inspiration for me. Ever since graduating in Art & Art History from the University of Iowa, I’ve been traveling all over the world. Europe – both east and west, Northern Africa, India, Nepal, Thailand, Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, the US…they have all shaped my design sensibility. I developed a deep love of global textiles that I feel has become part of my design DNA, and my textile company gives me an outlet to express that – a travel journal on fabric so to speak."
 
"My designs are sent to my workshop in Jaipur, India where skilled artisans carve the printing blocks by hand. The highlight for me is traveling to India to oversee the color mixing and sample making. A collection takes a minimum of 12 weeks to produce as master printers meticulously block-print everything by hand.  Each piece I design includes intricate borders. It takes additional planning and more work when printing, but the results are beautiful."
 
"Being a part of Seaside Gallery & Goods Collective has given me a unique opportunity to have a brick and mortar retail presence.  My fellow members are owners of creative businesses who generously share their individual strengths and skills with the Collective. Being able to draw on this deep well of experience and creativity helps me to grow and improve my own business. But best of all is the camaraderie and friendship between us that has enriched my life in so many ways.

MEET COLLECTIVE MEMBER - CARLYN CIRILLO June 01 2017

Carlyn grew up loving the ocean, so much so, that she pursued her degree in Marine Biology. After working a few years with Marine Mammals, she and her husband Steve decided to start a family and raise some mammals of their own. Several years later now, Steve is a successful contractor and Carlyn is a stay at home mother of five, yes, that is right, FIVE children.
The Cirillo family has always loved to travel to different beaches and while walking the shores, they began to collect driftwood. They found beaches filled with driftwood and soon were collecting truck loads full of these wayward trees. The unique beauty of each piece sparked Carlyns creative side and soon this became her creative outlet. It was a perfect way to create while spending time with her precious family.
Her talents include hand crafted mirrors, sea horses, stars, hearts and so much more.
Carlyn began selling her work at local craft fares and boutiques until she became one of the flagship members of the Seaside Gallery and Goods in 2015.
She loves to have a place where she can sell her coastal home décor and be a part of a collective where, she is surrounded by so many talented, energetic and supportive artists.
When Carlyn walks in the room, there is a sense of calm. She runs her business, in an effortless fashion, which shows in her beautiful work and products in her little shop here at Seaside.
We look forward to seeing you.

Meet Collective Member - Ilona Martin May 06 2017

Meet artist and Seaside Gallery and Goods Collective member Ilona Martin.

Where do you live?
I live on Lido Island in Newport Beach.

What is the name of your business?
Ilona Martin and Art & Treasures.

What type of business do you have?
I am a Painter of Seascapes and Landscapes, plus I enjoy collecting vintage items from my around the world travels to share at the gallery. I love painting in Provence, Hungary and Vienna while visiting my sisters. Carmel is where I often go to paint and show my work.

When and why did you start the business?
Coming from a pressure filled business life ten years ago, painting and travel gave me the mix of calm and adventure.
Living in Carmel exposed me to so much art which inspired me to paint. My first class at LCAD (Laguna College of Art and Design) in 1984, started a journey that was so fulfilling. I continued taking classes with Marylin Poliquin a wonderful painter, who gave me lesson's for year's. Marilyn pushed me to paint my way, since perspective eluded me in my paintings.


What do you want people to know about your business?
The business of painting is based on love of the craft and the continued journey to keep learning and improving my skills. Living next to the Pacific ocean awakens my soul to the rhythm of the waves,the blues,grays and greens permeate on my canvases creating impressionistic paintings.

What is something most people don’t know about you?
That I was born in East Germany and luckily made my way to America to be blessed with family and friends. That I like to whistle as I walk. Giving back is a large part of my life, volunteering as a board member for Hoag Hospital, Laguna Playhouse, Laguna College of Art & Design, Arts Council of Monterey, Hemingway Society and LAPAPA. Annually I plan a "Paint the Village" event June 3rd and 4th in Carmel to raise funds for art in public schools in Monterey County.


What do you like most about being a part of a collective?
Just as collective suggests, being part of a group with a common goal of sharing ideas and offering varied items from each member.. I feel very lucky to be part of such a wonderful group of women.


What do you want people to know about Seaside?
That our mission is to create a wonderful place for our neighbors to come and shop for those special items not found elsewhere. To support a fine group of entrepreneurs who are interested in each customer and enjoy engaging with them on their visit to Seaside.

Ilona Martin is truly a treasure and we at Seaside Gallery and Goods are most fortunate to have her in our collective. She brings an incredibly positive energy, always willing to go above and beyond to help others. Her day begins with asking, how she can serve others. She is a mentor to all of us.

Meet Collective Member - Honey Hostetler April 24 2017

Honey Hostetler, an Idaho native and member of our Seaside Gallery and Goods Collective, has lived in Newport Beach with her husband Cliff for over 50 years.  Honey has always been creative and enjoys needlepoint, embroidery, quilting and even calligraphy.  About 7 years ago, at the age of 74, Honey took a 3 day oil painting workshop in Coeur d Alene Idaho while on summer holiday with family.  The art teacher was very encouraging and gave her confidence in her hidden talent.  This opened up a whole new passion in Honey’s life.   She has continued to develop her craft by taking additional classes and workshops in both Idaho and Southern California.  Although she paints serious landscapes and still life, she also loves to paint animals with a humorous touch.  She loves painting dogs and has done numerous commissions for those wanting to honor their cherished pet with a portrait.  Honey joined Seaside Gallery and Goods in June of 2016 and loves the creative camaraderie, wonderful customers, and the support and friendships she has found here.  All of us at Seaside enjoy having Honey with us and we know once you meet her, you will immediately sense her warm and kind heart as we all do.

 


Meet Collective member, Denise Buczek of Succulent Style April 13 2017

 Where do you live?  Dana Point, CA

 What is the name of your business?  Succulent Style

 Tell us a little bit about Succulent Style?

Succulent Style offers fresh and long-lasting succulents designed in containers that compliment the overall arrangement.  Succulent Style creates and sells succulent arrangements at Seaside Gallery & Goods for both indoors and outdoors, offers custom arrangements and teaches a succulent design workshop to inspire others.

 When and why did you start the business?

I started Succulent Style over 4 years ago due to my love of interior design and nature.  I was seeking a way to have a flexible business that would allow me to bring my love for succulents to the forefront and create beauty in our homes, gardens and lives.

 What do you want people to know about your Succulent Style?

Succulent Style is really a way of life.  From the simplicity of a single succulent in a beautifully crafted pot to a family of succulents nestled together in a larger arrangement.  Nature reminds us that we are nourished by the most basic of elements.  I'm inspired by the calming palettes of succulents, particularly the blues and celadon greens which remind us of coastal living by the sea.  I really enjoy working with others to create a custom design for their indoor/outdoor living spaces and teaching others through my workshops about the basics of creating 'stylish succulent' arrangements. 

 What is something most people don’t know about you?

I have been self-employed as a government contracts consultant for 20 years working mostly with high-tech clients throughout the US.  Succulent Style is my welcomed haven away from the daily desk grind.  I have three golden retrievers, share my life with a man who can really cook and I dig Southern Rock music.

 What do you like most about being a part of a collective?

I feel so fortunate to be a part of the Seaside collective and culture!  I have found such inspiration and supportive friendships with these individuals as we have worked to build Seaside since September of 2014.  Sharing responsibilities together creates a flexible environment for us all. 

  

What do you want people to know about Seaside Gallery and Goods?

Seaside is my 'go to' place for unique gift items for family, friends, my home (and me).  The collective members put so much time and attention into their offerings and it really shows.  The store is an inspiration and makes you want to just pull up a chair and have a cup of tea or glass of wine, which is not uncommon.  The charming Pelican Courtyard behind Seaside allows us the opportunity to have amazing community events and gatherings for which we are fortunate to host.

Seaside Gallery and Goods Artist Profile - Honey Hostetler August 11 2016

I enjoy painting landscapes, still life, farm animals and recently have been fortunate to have commissions to do pet portraits.  I love it all. I am so happy with a paint brush in my hand!    - Honey

Artist Honey Hostetler, began painting in oil 5 years ago at age 75.  She was in Hayden Lake, Idaho when friends talked her into taking a 3 day oil painting workshop.  Honey knew she was blessed with artistic abilities but like many of us, had never seriously pursued this talent.  Studying under artist, the Ken Auster in Laguna, Honey was encouraged by her new found passion when awarded 2nd place in a Newport Beach Art Exhibition sponsored by the Newport Beach Library and Arts Commission.  The following year she received the "People's Choice" award.   


As one of the newest artist members to Seaside Gallery and Goods we are tickled to have Honey's whimsical and light-hearted oil paintings for sale at Seaside.


Beach Cottage Art by Gail Poltorak - Inspired by the Coast July 22 2016

Seaside Gallery and Goods is proud to present our newest local artist Gail Poltorak.  Gail is a successful Southern California artist and has made quite an impression on our customers and collective members with her beautiful and unique seaside inspired artwork...take a minute to get to know Gail.
Gail Poltorak Art
I am a trained Laguna Beach Artist and co-owner/artist at Quorum Gallery in North Laguna.  I paint beach cottage art for those who love coastal living.  My interior design background allows me to use art to transform spaces.  My selection process always begins with this thought, "Will this subject bring my audience to a beach experience?"  My art is about the weathering power of nature:  sun rays, ocean waves, boat reflections, weathered coastal cottages, old row boats, and shells that are a gift from the ocean.  My paintings are about sun shine, sand, and oceans.  My goal is to bring the majesty of the coast into the home.
     Acrylic is my first choice as it allows me to tell my story.  Acrylic paint can be thinned to create a weathered look, mixed with mediums to create a glassy look needed in a reflection, and old tubes give the painted a thick rich look that I love to use for texture.  
     My Uncle, who was an award winning artist in Seal Beach inspires me.  The many gifted Laguna Beach artists who have painted side by side with me helped to develop my style of painting that works for sharing my passion for coastal living.
      My career was as local high school art teacher for 27 years…best job ever!  The main focus of my classes were drawing and the properties of color.  I create at the Beach of course, and I have studios in Huntington Beach and Laguna Beach.  When my husband and I remodeled our home we went from an antique style to beach cottage.  We quickly realized that to capture the coastal look we were looking for we needed original beach cottage art.  I started painted shells, cottages, and boat reflections on water.  On my morning bike ride in the harbor I started to stop and take pictures for inspiration.
     I entered my first official art contest in 2012, "Art That’s Small for Laguna Beach City Hall”.  Before the show I received a call from the art commissioner telling me the City Clerk wanted to purchase my painting!  My life as a Laguna Beach Artist is like living the dream! 

Follow me on social media and through my websites for all the details.  Please contact me directly for any commission work.
