I was inspired to make this painting after visits to the magnificent RSPB reserves at Hermaness on Unst and Sumburgh Head, Shetland South Mainland. I love the way puffins, interact with each other, and even their human visitors! The driftwood branches of my frame were in fact gathered from a beach in Ulva near Mull. With help from a sea - going friend, I lashed the canvas, (which had been pierced with eyelets like deckchair or sailing canvas) to this frame, and called it "Puffin Sail!"
