Glaslyn Osprey Project – Artist in Residence 2016

I have been working at Glaslyn Osprey Visitors centre again, drawing from the live video feed. It is another fantastic season. Mrs G and Aran have successfully incubated, hatched and are rearing two chicks. We don’t know what gender they are yet – but the bets are on. Many of us think this time they are the same sex – but are they male or female? We won’t find out until they are ringed. In the meantime, I’ll keep drawing.

Glaslyn Osprey project – artist in residence 2015

I am currently doing a residency at the Glaslyn Osprey project on a voluntary basis. This organization is entirely run by volunteers and dependent on donations to keep going. All the drawings I make are for sale and a percentage of the price is donated back to the project.

The Ospreys nearly died out in this country, and thanks to the dedication of a few they are now thriving once more. It’s been wonderful to draw the progress of this years breeding pair.

I draw from the live video feed at the Glaslyn centre and get down there as often as possible.

Cerebellium 2014

Cerebellium 2014 was suported by Pontio, University of Bangor and Arts Council of Wales.

Cerebellium 2014 was an immersive theatre experience and I painted live while Professor Guillaume Thierry, playing Professor Kurtz, explained the workings of his ‘brain in the vat’.

The brain in the vat, communicating through music to the scientists and friends. The infinity loop connects the mind consciousness to the brain matter.

Storm Damage

I went for a walk on Criccieth beach yesterday and was horrified to see so many dead birds in a one mile stretch. It really brought home to me the impact the weather is having on our whole ecology.
I drew these birds in my sketch book, and took photos with my phone. Today I put them together into a short video. See the video on the Artworks
