Naturae observatio

Naturae Observatio

Naturae Observatio Spitsbergen Science Expeditions follows the five BBES expeditions carried out by the IK Foundation in 2016–2020. It is written by leading international writers and contains extensive thematic fold-outs. I made the field drawings and paintings, translated and edited the bird chapter, and contributed base facts for charts covering expeditions and historical bird observations. We plan to publish this hand-bound monograph in November this year. Purchase your own copy here.

Going up, looking down

Art and the Animal

My painting Going up, looking down has been juried into the 64th Annual Exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists. The exhibition will be held at The Sioux City Public Museum, Iowa from September 1st through November 30th, 2024. 

We spotted this polar bear as a yellow dot moving slowly on the opposite side of the fjord. It settled on a cliff to digest a big meal, maybe a whale or seal carcass. I made some pencil sketches and took some photos from the boat and then took out the oils and brushes back in the studio.
