About


Hello I'm Zoe! Sand & Seagulls was formed in July 2013 by me, Zoe and my husband Ash. We have lived by the seaside all our lives and so have a real love of the beach. So much so, in August 2010 when we got married we had a seaside themed wedding.

When Rudy, our eldest son, came along in December 2012 this gave me the opportunity and idea (in-between naps and nappy changes!) to get creative again. In the evenings after work Ash learnt how to make a website, so we put our new found skills together and created Sand and Seagulls.Why Sand & Seagulls? – Because for me they are the first two things I think of when I think of the seaside.

I started my working life in Financial Services Marketing but in 2016 I left to concentrate on being a Mum and Sand & Seagulls. So now with three boys and Dolly the Pug and Mabel the Border Terrier to look after I spend as much time as I can in my office/studio 'Sandie' at the bottom of the garden following my passion.

I hope to bring you a piece of the seaside through my products, newsletter and social media.

Thank you for supporting my small business, it means the world!
