Beacon Hill resident turns beach bits into art

“It’s often a toss-up as to what it a shell will become. Most of the time, I have no earthly idea what I’m going to do with them.”

In addition to creating her random works of art, Daniels takes bulk orders and has been busy prepping shell-based Christmas ornaments for the holidays.

The goal was never to make money until Daniels decided to help fund more activities for her fellow residents.

If those activities come at the cost of Daniel’s art, she’s happy to help. She also praised activities director Tiffany Lee for the slew of Halloween-themed activities in recent weeks that included decorating pumpkins, masks and pennants.

Lee also instituted a “learn something new” program for the facility that included a first aid class and several sign language classes to help everyone communicate with one of the home’s deaf residents.

She has also started a walking club and takes the residents out to eat and on shopping trips at least once a month.

Daniels just hopes that buyers will put her creations on their coffee table or book shelf to add a little bit of nature inside their home.
