Mix a love for the sea and a love for watercolors and you have Sketches by the Sea. 

As the daughter of a fisherman and diver, I spent much of my childhood on the San Francisco Bay, or going up and down Highway 1 of California's Coast. I continue this tradition by packing up paints (and snacks) and heading out to beaches, marinas, and anywhere you can find pretty boats on the Pacific Coast. Sketches by the Sea products seek to share that joy of sea breezes, salt spray and whimsy found by the seashore. 

 As an ocean lover, I take great care to create products that are eco-friendly and made with quality. I use recycled paper in my paper goods; 100% cotton textiles in my home goods; and recycled, eco-friendly, or repurposed shipping supplies. 

Sketches by the Sea started when I was headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area. My other half has converted me to a Pacific Northwesterner and a sailor. We and our pittie mutt, Alfie live in Seattle on a sailboat. 

Ahoy and cheers, Marisa
