Carrie & Seash was launched by Carrie Barnes and Seashols Barnes-Poppler, a mother and daughter team, in July 2017. Based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Carrie & Seash is an art and design company for custom watercolor stationery, artwork, textile design, special event cards and invitations. Carrie & Seash work with prospective brides, parents, business owners, nonprofits, and wedding planners to create custom monogrammed crests, wedding maps, “save the dates,” local maps, invitations, textile prints, and menus. Each design is custom-made and the client is involved in the full design and decision process to guarantee they love the result.
While Seashols was growing up, her Mom, Carrie, nurtured her artistic talents as they sketched, painted, designed, and printed textiles. Seashols majored in Advertising at Southern Methodist University with a minor in art. After graduating she worked at Deutsche Bank in Dallas, Texas for three years before moving to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Carrie & Seash designed everything for Seashols wedding in May 2016 which sparked the creation of Carrie & Seash and their watercolor aspirations. Carrie is known for her painting, furniture-making, luthier skills, gardening, landscape design, and even golf course design renderings early on in her career for her father Roy Dye and uncle Pete Dye.
Today, Carrie and Seash collaborate on custom watercolor stationery, wedding maps, home renderings, an annual calendar, and invitations which can be found in retail stores in Dallas, Atlanta, San Diego and Baton Rouge, as well as on D-Magazine, Venzedits, Dallaswardrobe and other top blogging and designer websites across the United States. They are excited to show their first children's clothing line collaboration launching in December 2018 by Dondolo, a Southern based Children's Clothing company that gives back to communities in need. Carrie and Seash pride themselves in being able to make their clients watercolor ideas a reality.
