Sarah Grindler grew up on Salt Spring Island. She spent most of her childhood on the beach and in the water. Inspired by her artistic family and beautiful surroundings, she followed her passion for art and story telling into a career of creating children’s picture books. She now lives on Salt Spring Island with her husband Jason and Puss-Puss the cat. Look for her new picture book Seaside Treasures (A Guidebook for Little Beachcombers) coming out this May!
I have spent my life beach combing and have always loved the excitement of finding treasures washed ashore. This art piece inspired my upcoming children’s picture book: Seaside Treasures (A Guidebook for Little Beachcombers). Sea glass is a beautiful artifact that can be found almost everywhere on beaches where the surf has pounded and shaped glass fragments into shapes of art. Vintage bottles, jars, and anything made from glass, thrown away in decades past, are tumbled by the waves of the ocean to form beautiful gems of diverse colours.
