Through studying marine biology and learning to scuba dive, Natasha Hynes developed a strong appreciation for algae. After bringing home a few pieces of seaweed from the beach one day, Subtidal Creations Co. was born. Coming from Newfoundland, her love for the Northwest Atlantic Ocean motivated her to show the world the beauty, the elegance, and the diversity that our ocean provided.
Subtidal Creations Co. is currently based in St. Andrews, New Brunswick and aims to represent the natural beauty of Atlantic Canada in as many countries as possible. Her wish is that her passion and love bleeds into my art and fills your home with the same positivity. She hopes that every time one of her presses is viewed, it reminds us to show the utmost respect for the ocean: our blue home.
