This month’s Resurgence and Ecologist featured my work alongside an article by Germaine Greer. She will be doing a talk in association with the Bristol Festival of Nature and Ideas on Thursday 12th June, 6.15-7.15p.m. The lecture will be about the environment, and her project to return 148 acres (60 hectares) of run-down dairy farm to sub-tropical rainforest.
The Scarlet malachite beetle (Malachius aeneus) is one of the UK’s rarest insects. It is found on just eights sites. Its decline is thought to be due to habitat loss and the intensification of agriculture. It feeds on flowers in meadows and overgrown hedgerows. Buttercup pollen is one of its favourite foods.
I have recently been exhibiting in Bristol, 5 % of the earnings from any of the prints sold will go to the charity Buglife.
Buglife aims to halt the extinction of invertebrate species and to achieve sustainable populations of invertebrates for future generations.
