OCEAN GROVE, NJ — Visual artist Vincent DiGerlando, who uses driftwood, stones and seashells as his canvas, is Serenity by the Sea’s featured artist.

His driftwood word and image paintings are part of the ever-evolving “mix of merriment” at the specialty shop located at 53 Main Avenue, where it’s all about creating beautiful things.

DiGerlando believes the pieces of nature that he uses in his creations contain the many spirits and energies of the earth, wind, sun and sea acquired from their journeys, starting from the time they left their source of origin.
