Inspired by Tradition. Crafted with Artistry.
Sailors valentines created by award-winning valentine artist Sandy Moran. From custom and commissioned valentines to restorations and repairs of antique and modern sailors valentines, also providing classes and workshops on Cape Cod and in Sanibel, Florida.
As far back as the early 1800’s homesick seamen returned from their journeys with special tokens of remembrance for their loved ones called Sailor’s Valentines.
Today, these treasures are crafted by award winning artist Sandy Moran in her Cape Cod studio. Following tradition, Sandy hand places thousands of natural shells into her unique design interpretations to create heirloom quality pieces of art. Her sailors valentines include patterns and flowers of various unusual seashells, a unique centerpiece, and are encased in quality handmade cases of cherry or tiger maple. Sandy also delicately restores and repairs antique sailors valentines.
As a featured artist on a PBS fundraiser show, Sandy has also been featured in Martha Stewart magazine, Coastal Living magazine, La Vie Claire Magazine, Yankee Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, as well as in various Florida publications and national television.
All of Sandy Moran’s sailors valentines are unique … all one of a kind, to be treasured and passed down as a family heirloom.
