Meet the Team

Sandrine Day

Seashell story is owned and operated by Sandrine Day. She is a self-confessed ocean-lover and has been fascinated by its beauty from a very young age. Originally from France, and after a decade of travels around the world, Sandrine moved to Kaikoura, New Zealand in 2008, where she is now happily married with 2 beautiful boys. Sandrine has turned her passion of seashells into a full-time job at Ocean Arts, selling everything from her handmade jewelry and candles, large selection of decorative seashells, fossils, crystals… as well as hundreds of other ocean-themed products to adorn the household!

Jane Riley

Jane Riley is an award winning artist who loves to capture the majestic land and ocean within her artworks. Published as one of New Zealand’s Favourite Artists, Jane displays her art all around the country and her paintings can be found in private collections around the world. Jane has based herself in the beautiful seaside town of Kaikoura for the past near decade. Here she gathers much of her inspiration - with the backdrop of the tail end of the Southern Alps falling into the bountiful Pacific Ocean.

About Ocean Arts

In a small town in North Canterbury, known for its sea life and beautiful views, lies a shop that gives locals and tourists alike a place to buy ocean treasures.

Ocean Arts is the amalgamation of two passionate and creative locals. Jane and Sandrine  took the fantastic opportunity to open a retail store together in 2016 following the Kaikoura Earthquake.

Ocean Arts is based in a refurbished container overlooking Kaikoura’s Esplanade. They sell everything from stunning art works, to handmade candles and other goodies!
