Knotted Wrack, Ascophyllum nodosum
The Knotted Wrack is found along the rocky shorelines of New England. The “knots” are actually gas bladders which help the algae stay upright underwater. This helps them exchange gases and absorb nutrients from the ocean which would be difficult without the bladders because the fronds would just pile up. These large 5" x 7" high quality art cards are printed on card stock, come pre-folded, packed in a clear sleeve per 10 cards, and include one white envelope for each card. Cards are blank inside for a personalized message. Printed on recycled paper.
My mission as an artist is to inspire an appreciation for and curiosity about nature and its creatures by communicating the aesthetic beauty of this planet’s amazing creatures as they really are.
It is my hope that this appreciation will result in acts of empathy & stewardship towards these incredible creatures portrayed in my paintings.
