Kim is a local artist/crafter who uses found shells from our beaches to make beautiful sea-themed wall art.

From Kim: "When I moved to the OBX in 2016, I knew I needed to find a way to use all the broken shells and pieces on the beach! With lots of experimentation I finally perfected my technique! Each piece is unique and will make you smile. Years of enjoyment from your art is what I wish for you!"

"Not only do I love crafting but I am also a professional photographer. I am the owner of Seas the Day Photography OBX. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, I always dreamt of living at the beach. In May 2016 that became a reality when I moved to Hatteras, NC. Now I spend my time photographing families and weddings on the beach and searching for shells to make my creations!

My shell creations are made only from shells and pieces of shells that I collect myself on the Hatteras Island beaches. No shells are purchased. Each piece is different and is special to me; I hope it will become special to you too. The Outer Banks beaches are known for shell collecting because we are so close to the gulfstream. Scallop shells, olive, scotch bonnet, baby’s ear, oyster, conch, whelk, cockle, sundial, coquinas, jingles and the occasional sand dollar and starfish along with many others, I pick up and use for my creations."
