Littleneck Quahog, Mercenaria mercenaria
Pronounced "Kwa' hog" this hard shelled clam is a staple of the coastal New England diet. They can survive almost anywhere in salt water and have solid populations in New England. They are also important as natural filters- one quahog can filter about 24 gallons of water per day. 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.
