The Venetian series

Close your eyes to see the winding streets and the tangerine glare of old lamps. Listen to the echo of moving water and voices of strangers. Venice welcomes you to the carnival – its love, mystery and flare. Indulge your love for Venice.

Venice has captivated my soul for years. No matter how many days I spent roaming the city, I couldn’t get enough of its beauty, history and culture. This is the place of romance, art, architecture, and love for me. I can listen to its sounds day and night, glide through morning fog, get lost on the narrow streets, and take pictures of masked strangers. Back in my studio, I worked from my photographs to re-create the romantic mystery of Venice in a series of surreal paintings. These carnival paintings represent my first, quality body of work I’m proud to share with you today.

These Venice-inspired paintings will wow your guests. Turn your living room, bedroom or office space into your private art gallery. Shop now!

About our company

Seascape Necklace opened in 2016 after years of education, practice, and passion for all things handmade. Russian-American professional artist, Veronica Winters has been creating art for two decades of her life. Ever since her upbringing in Moscow, she’s been fascinated with beauty around her. When she moved to Naples, Florida the idea of making something elegant, affordable, and ocean-inspired that women could wear every day downed on her, and she began experimenting with the epoxy resin, a very durable material once cured correctly. “I got fascinated with the beauty of seashells and wanted to create the ocean-themed jewelry with the inspiring feel of nature, tropics, and the beach.” Like your best vacation memories, these handmade beach jewelry pieces preserve the best recollections of a sunny beach. The handmade seashell necklaces pop with sparkling color and capture the ocean’s beauty and healing energy in the unique gifts of nature – the ocean crystals.

The artist casts real seashells, starfish and beads in resin, which is a skill that involves time, patience, high-quality materials, and the exact room temperature to produce the handcrafted pieces. The casting of one piece is done in two to three days plus a day for quality assembly and photography.

Transforming the healing energy of the ocean into her real seashell necklaces, keychains, and bracelets has become her artistic expression. “I wish to create perfect summer keepsakes of the warm beach.” The artist is proud to offer one-of-a-kind, beautiful, handcrafted, high-quality products at an affordable price that people could gift and share.

I bought a handmade shell necklace from Veronica as a special birthday gift for my mom. It was delivered overseas quickly and has been worn over and over again.  I would highly recommend these special, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.

Kathleen Bessent

My granddaughter was thrilled to receive this necklace. The design and style fits her personality perfectly. Plus it reminds her of the many family vacations to the beach each year. So glad I could find this unusual necklace, one appreciated by the younger age. Will buy more in the future.

I could not resist purchasing this necklace for myself. The star fish surrounded by shells and pearls give the impression it is still floating amongst other sea creatures in a delicate gentle sea. I love this necklace and wear it often.

Cleopatra iconic women painting

Portraits of iconic women throughout history

 

 

I always wanted to paint something meaningful and worth people’s attention. I’ve painted numerous different things to become proficient enough to pursue what I always wanted – helping women succeed. The theme of Iconic Women fascinates me because I can depict many sides of female beauty and inner strength. I’ve chosen to paint strong iconic women who had courage, logic, determination, goal-setting, and other character traits that are often attributed to men. These women overcame their social-economic limitations to become famous personalities who lived with purpose and changed the world around them.

In my surreal paintings of women I explore the inner life of these icons. What they created and exposed to the outside world wasn’t always the reflection of their interior life. I make an attempt to humanize them by painting their emotions and challenges: love, failure, addiction, responsibilities and dreams. So we can see the spectrum of character and understand that those iconic women throughout history were also guided by their emotions as much as by their reason, and were also complex personalities as any of us.

Exploring the vulnerability of the feminine spirit, I take the liberty to interpret the days of their lives based on their biographies processed through my view of the world, observations and artistic sensitivity. I explore the themes of love and delusion, power and powerlessness, spirituality and vanity, abandonment and strength. I aim to give the iconic women new life where contemporary women can identify or recognize a part of themselves, and connect with a famous woman on a much deeper level.

It’s hard to “assign” a particular style to my portraits of women that floats between the surreal paintings and magical realism painting. It’s painting reality that turns surreal that can be compared to writing a fiction novel with the main characters derived from the author’s personal experiences and observations.

My artistic mission is to paint the female heroes to inspire women to find their calling in life. I want to open up a dialogue, to create a visual experience of seeing the female icons in a different light, where women could find answers to their questions, to be able to apply themselves, to define their dreams and to work on their future with certainty. In other words, through my oil paintings I invite others to find their female hero to achieve personal fulfillment.

Art is personal. If I had the opportunities, moral support, and a professional artist/mentor back in high school, my life could have been very different from what I had.  While I have no regrets, I simply know how crucial these years are for personal development, choosing the right path to achieve success in the future, to cut on years spent wondering around the bush, trying to listen to a hidden voice within, and fighting with myself internally. Therefore I choose to paint women who made history, real women who overcame their struggles to achieve success in life.
