Every morning during lockdown (24th March – 28th May ) I walked from my home in Tywardreath, Cornwall, carrying a tiny notebook and a stub of a pencil. I devised a different route each day, and made notes, drawings, observations and discoveries. Every afternoon I converted this information into a small painting. The resulting artwork consists of 56 studies of insects, leaves, landscapes, birds, sticks, stones, trees, shells, notes, quotes, souvenirs or whatever else caught my attention.
Following Sir David Attenborough’s compelling – and terrifying – programmes about species extinction I am raising money for conservation charities. I have produced ‘Lockdown Diary – 56 Days’ as a Giclee print.
All the profits will be given to the most effective charities. With The Foster Art and Wilderness Foundation’s help I have so far sold 180 copies, earning over £25,000 to distribute. Sir David and Professor Sir Ghillean Prance have recommended Rainforest Trust UK; WWF - World Wildlife Fund; and Cornwall Wildlife Trust to receive the money.
