New exhibition looming!

With my exhibition at Theatr Clwyd, Mold, North Wales, getting ever closer, I’ve been hard at work in the studio for the last couple of months, with just a short break for Christmas!

I’m trying to capture the story of the Little Terns – tiny terns who over-winter in West Africa then migrate northwards.  Quite a few of them come to the reserve at Gronant, near Prestatyn, where they are protected as well as they can be by ever-vigilant wardens.

Little Terns are incredible aerial acrobats, who only really come to land to mate and nest.  Their courtship flights are amazing!  I literally have photos of them flying upside down!

Took a couple of hours off yesterday to take down my puffin picture from exhibition in the Oriel Mostyn Llandudno.
