We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources.

The city of Dana Point has chosen Art Sea as the Business of the Month for May 2015.
Art Sea, located in Dana Point Harbor, is owned by Mark Hanson who purchased the shop from his friend and original owner 15 years ago. Being a long time Dana Point resident and working in the retail industry for Guess for over 10 years, Hanson jumped at the chance to purchase the business. About a year later, Hanson purchased the shop next door from his friend as well, and although the two stores are separate, they are joined by an open doorway so customers can easily stroll through both shops.
Upon purchasing Art Sea, Hanson made some minor changes and also expanded the selection of jewelry and art. Currently, Art Sea offers a wide selection of beautiful jewelry, not just items from local artists, but from all over the world, including designs from Spain, Germany and Israel. Hanson works hard to make sure his selections are of the highest quality and that there’s something for everyone and at every budget.
In addition to jewelry, Art Sea carries brass and bronze sculptures including the work of renowned wildlife artist Brian Arthur. A selection of ceramic, wood, glass and metal sculptures, art, wind chimes and photo tiles showcasing beautiful images from around Dana Point and the surrounding area, are also offered.
Hanson and his staff pride themselves on their customer service and offering the best products in both quality and price. Their customer service, quality, price and selection attracts residents and tourists, as well as customers from across Orange County and the shop has become a popular go-to spot in Dana Point for jewelry, art and sculpture.
