Painting _ Strandloper Project

Strandloper Project Coastal Expedition l Research and clean up education project

"Ghostfishing" (oil on canvas, 940mm x 700mm) was sold on auction to assist funding for this much needed project based along the Garden Route. The Strandloper Project is aimed at researching the impact of recreational fishing debris and plastic pollution on the marine environment and organise regular diving and beach clean up sessions in the area.

The work was purchased by Wilderness beachfront restaurant, Salinas and can be viewed hanging in the restaurant.




The inspiration for the third gannet (below the water) in this sequence was from an incredible photo taken by Scottish marine biologist and photographer Richard Shucksmith Photography (facebook page), who kindly gave me permission to use it.
