Following an illustrious career spanning decades in Hollywood as a respected and published fine art / portrait photographer, Doug set his talented eye on the beach... Mandalay Shores to be exact! With the beauty of his surroundings as inspiration Doug handcrafts each and every one of his unique creations with exceptional attention to detail. He uses beautiful hand selected shells as the main medium and introduces other natural elements like sea glass, driftwood, gems, beads, etc. The results range from naturally weather worn organic to beach chic glamour! From large statement mirrors to small bejeweled starfish to trinket boxes and luxurious home decor items, each one of a kind piece is sure to be a conversation starter. Several examples of Doug’s work already adorn homes right here in the Shores as well as homes in Los Angeles, Miami and many others across the country.
