Ben and Raisa Gertsberg, a husband and wife artist duo who collaborate under the name It’s a Beautiful World!® have always known that all one needs to do to find beauty is look around. They share a passion for life and their art is inspired by nature and contemporary design. In their work, they blend their rich sense of color, light and composition with unusual versatility of the digital medium.

Ben and Raisa are originally from Russia. They lived in Chicago until they moved to one of the Orange County, CA, beach cities. Living on the beautiful Pacific Coast triggered their inner creativity and inspired them to develop and share their unique artistic interpretations of the new environment.

The Seashells Spectacular series is the artists’ tribute to the awesome beauty of Southern California coast. Images from this series decorated the Music Room of the beach-themed Sunset Magazine 2005 Idea House in Ladera Ranch, CA. The series went on to become popular with residential and commercial designers and decorators, as well as those who enjoy coastal living.
