My name is Julie Hembree, the artist for Sea Dream Designs. I am a Sequim artist creating handcrafted coastal inspired artwork created with the treasures of the sea I have been collecting from decades of beachcombing. 

I grew up in New England and spent my summers on the beaches in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine and still have many of the shells I collected as a child. After college, I moved west and lived the majority of my life near Seattle. My husband and I have spent countless hours exploring beaches around the world. After retiring from a career as a classroom teacher and librarian, my husband and I have happily settled in Sequim. I am now on a journey of creativity and peaceful moments. I walk daily on our local beaches with my dogs searching for unusual shells, driftwood and seaglass I can use in my artwork. 

My mission is to create and provide coastal-inspired art that evokes the beauty and diversity of the ocean, while also promoting the use of natural and sustainable materials in the art-making process. 

My customers are the people who connect with nature and the beauty of the oceans and want to bring the outside into their homes. I hope when they look at my artwork, they are reminded of the moments that have mattered in their lives.
