It's been a few weeks since I last wrote a blog post, as I've just started editing my final film "Legacy" about Zimbabwean wildlife artist Tich Ncube, but there have been quite a few exciting updates in the last month which I thought I'd share!
Festival of Nature
I was lucky enough to speak at the Festival of Nature's Nature Content Creator's Evening 2022 at the Watershed two weeks ago. It was such a pleasure talking about my wildlife artivism, and showing sneak-previews of my latest works. You can watch a recording of my talk on YouTube below:
Every Dune is a Mountain - a mini-collection
I'm unbelievably excited to announce that my second poetry book, Every Dune is a Mountain is now available to get for free from my shop! Every Dune is a Mountain was produced in partnership with The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and Dynamic Dunescapes, and is an illustrated mini-collection of poems exploring the wild beauty of Britain's sand dunes. It is accompanied by an audio book, read by the wonderful Jacob Burley, and contains sheet music and a song written and performed by the amazing Will Pearce!
Bristol Science Film Festival
I'm very pleased to reveal that two of my short films have been shortlisted in Bristol Science Film Festival's "Science Fact Amateur" category 2022. "The Tale of the Six-spot Burnet Moth" and "The Science of Bird Flight" - there will be a physical and virtual screening of the films on the 13th of August - or you can watch them both below:
Conservation Optimism Good Natured Film Festival Exhibition
I'm really pleased to be showcasing some of my favourite invertebrate artworks at the awards ceremony for Conservation Optimism's Good Natured Film Festival, in an art exhibition at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. The exhibition and film festival screening will be held on Friday 8th July - it's free to attend, so do come along if you can! You can find out more and get tickets here.
DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year 2022
Finally, I am beyond excited to announce that my wildlife artivism piece "High Lux", which explores how light pollution affects nocturnal moths, is in the final of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation's Wildlife Artist of the Year 2022, in the "Human Impact" category! The virtual awards ceremony will be held on the 31st of August, and the virtual exhibition will run from September 1st to October 2nd 2022.
