About Us - and Long Beach Island, New Jersey
ShoreisFineArt.com, sure is a silly name. But it's easy to remember and it combines two of the things we love – the Jersey Shore and great fine art. And that just happens to be what we sell here. Original fine art featuring inspiration from the Jersey Shore, surfing, the ocean, and specifically LBI - Long Beach Island.
We've spent many years soaking up the sun and frolicking in the ocean and the bay on L.B.I. and at the Jersey Shore. We hope you enjoy the island lifestyle and relaxed living that it offers as much as we do. This website let's you bring some of that into your home, beach house, office, or wherever you may be. So that you can live it every day. We want to share the inspiration the Island has given us, with you, and hope that it brings happiness and joy into your life too.
Founded by local artist Richard Cardona and his wife Alison Judah, ShoreisFineArt.com offers original, unique works of art from both artists.
