Ever since I was little I loved to go to the beach. I would watch the snails move about in the tide pools. Everywhere they went they would leave little trails etched into the sand. These trails would always bring a smile to my face. If you watched them carefully eventually the trails would become amazing works of art.
What I have learned from these magical little creatures is no matter how small or insignificant a creation may be. An artist leaves “trails” of art behind to inspire the imagination and to bring a smile to ones face, so the name Snail Trail Creations was born….
