Meet Our Newest Member at Seaside Gallery
Posted on February 17 2022
We are a collective of local artists, artisans and entrepreneurs who operate cooperatively to provide a uniquely local shopping and gathering experience here at Seaside Gallery.
We opened in September of 2014, in hopes to offer a great place to shop, create and connect. Each section of the store is curated with intent to offer an exclusive "pop up shop." We offer an array of goods that include home decor, specialty artwork, jewelry, fragrance, gifts for both men and baby and women's clothing.
She hails from a long line of creatives and initially immersed herself in the fine arts through trained ballet, acting and professional vocal and voiceover work. Following her academic studies in Psychology at UC Irvine and Chapman University, she also opened up her own thriving private Counseling Practice and continues to enjoy helping others heal, build healthy relationships and create fulfilling lives of their own.
Her Father's passing in 2013 led her to try watercolor painting as a way to manage her grief. A period of continued growth through mentorships, pivotal conferences and coaching eventually brought oils to her artist's palette. She says her intro to oil painting was eye opening in that creatively she finally found her "language".
Lesa pairs her creative journey with her business acumen, and today offers Business Coaching services to others looking to refine their own path.
We offer a warm Seaside welcome to our new collective member, Lesa Vander Bie! More details about Lesa's background - and available artwork can be found in her profile below.
