art in the Highlands of Scotland
Just returned from the glorious Aigas Field Centre in Inverness-shire
after tutoring a week-long wildlife art course. We were fortunate
to have some gorgeous weather, the autumn colours were magnificent
and golden eagles soared overhead. Inspirational
stuff! Thanks to the wonderful staff and rangers at Aigas and
especially thanks to my lovely students who did some wonderful
work during the week. If you'd like to join next year's course,
read more details about my Highland
wildlife art course.

in Residence, Nature In Art
I'll be Artist in Residence, 30 Sept - 5 Oct, at the lovely
Nature in Art, the world’s first museum and art gallery dedicated
to fine, decorative and applied art inspired by nature.
After Scotland and Spain it'll be a relief to do something a
bit closer to home.
And I always love being at Nature In Art, catching up with old
friends, making new ones and talking about all things nature
and art. Might even get some painting done! Do come and visit.

Just added another penguin
print to my Falklands collection,
this time an open edition released on 1st August. As it's an
open edition, I've been able to make it a very affordable price.

Habitat Trust Conservation Stamp
Back from CLA Game Fair where I attended the launch of John
WHT conservation stamp. Each year the WHT commissions wildlife
artwork for a £5 stamp to raise funds for conservation projects.
In previous years some illustrious British wildlife artists
have created the artwork from which the stamp is produced, including
Rodger McPhail, Keith Shackleton, Bruce Pearson, Terence Lambert,
Robert Gillmor, Keith Brockie and Andrew Haslen. I'm delighted
to have been commissioned to paint the 2015 stamp and it being
the 25th stamp makes it extra special.
