The Coastal Collection...

Introducing Susan Fairgrieve, our featured artist on Everything Coastal Style!

We love Susan's detailed sepia toned coastal photography; nautical images, and beach-washed sea shells are just a few of the many sea treasures she has captured with her art.  We know you will love this collection too, perfect for just about any beach home!


Susan is a life-long resident of the Jersey Shore,  practicing her graphic design and photographing talent while residing in the quaint harbor village of Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey with her husband Scott.  Atlantic Highlands Marina is the largest municipal harbor on the eastern seaboard. The town of Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey also has the distinction of having the highest coastal elevation on the eastern seaboard.  Susan sent me a map of her town and pictures, beautifully picturesque..I cannot  wait until we can go visit one day!


Student of The Art Institute of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for Visual Communications, Susan Fairgrieve majored in visual communications. Today,with over nineteen years experience in graphic design, advertising and marketing, learned skills as well as a trained eye come through in her work as a photographer.

Advertising layout and photography are both composed of design elements blended to achieve one goal—a visual creation for the eye to behold.

Possessing a broad spectrum of design sense from a graphic design background, this photographer designs through the lens. With gifts from the sea and nautical elements in her surroundings, her love for texture
and shapes comes through in this “Coastal Collection” series.  (Beauty and Braun)

From the shores of Block Island and Martha’s Vineyard to the Bahamian beaches, the collected elements for this series are very unique and beautiful—a guaranteed delight to the visitor of the Jersey Shore or any beach home owner with a love for coastal living. (White Mansions)

Fairgrieve is a collector of moon snails and colorful beach cruisers. At Caron's Beach House, we  love her moon snail portraits, here's a few samples of those images that we are very excited to present, these can be ordered in sizes up to 36" x 48". Think of a collection grouped together.... 


Broken Home (don't you just love the title!)





With coastal Monmouth County being her home, Susan spends her leisure time on or near the water. She embraces her love for the ocean and the beauty of nature in her surrounding environment.  Come see how's she's captured that  love of the sea.... Caron's Beach House
