THE MAINELY TIDAL STORY
"Simply beautiful and all natural"
My name is Melanie Enman. I am a mother, wife, entrepreneur, thalassophyle and artist. I grew up in a small town just around the corner from Kennebunkport, Maine. As a small child I would spend my summers going to the local beaches always gathering special treasures and leaving them piled up for someone else to come upon. Years later I was also married to the love of my life David on one of those same beaches. We have two beautiful daughters, Haley & Bella Sol born 18 years apart.
November of 2017 I was looking for the perfect one of a kind gift. Original gifts are hard to come by
so I decided to create my own from pebbles, sea glass, driftwood and shells found on the Coast of Maine.
Within a week from creating my first piece through word of mouth my orders were coming in and by Christmas I had made and sold over 60 pieces! Over night it had become a business and by April of 2018 it was my fulltime "job".
Today you can find me at the beach gathering treasures with my family from the beaches of Maine and Sanibel Island
or in my studio creating art with those treasures.
The idea is to try to capture the look, the smell, the feel of the ocean to create something simply beautiful and natural
with my treasures. I am so thankful for this path and to have this gift that I am able to share with all of you.
I am grateful and humbled by all of the support along the way.
