Plans for 2020 – arctic expedition

I’ve got a very special trip planned in May and June 2020: I’m sailing as crew on the yacht Narwhal from Tromso in Norway up the Norwegian coast, across the Barent Sea and the Arctic Circle, around the Svalbard coast and into Longyearbyen.

Along the way, we’ll have to watch out for polar bears and icebergs and hopefully see lots of much friendlier wildlife too.

When I leave Narwhal, I’ll then have some time on land in the Arctic summer to continue to make the most of the midnight sun and inspirational wildlife and landscape.

I know I’ll return with a wealth of images and sketches to develop into my next solo exhibition…
