I am a local artist, born and raised in Maryland, 2.5 hours from the ocean. I am a true beach lover and shell hunter. Theirs no one better to create an east coast shell figurine for you. Frogs, turtles, owls, dogs, cats, even elephants and people too! I can make any shell figurine you request. Email me what you would like, include size measurements, and I'll be in touch shortly.
