"After we were out of lock down I headed to Ningaloo to swim with whale sharks. This is something I've dreamed of for years, yet nothing quite prepares you for meeting these gentle giants! It was wonderful after a few months of cold weather to suddenly be snorkelling and enjoying sunshine. I took dad with me and we spent a few days checking out different beaches, enjoying the currents pulling us along Turquoise Bay and exploring Yardie Creek Gorge

I'm working on a painted underwater series due for completion in 2022. Currently building technique, enjoying the first few paintings that have emerged and prepping some large scale canvases to capture the awe of Ningaloo. 

If you're thinking of going check out tour company Ocean Eco Adventures, I can't recommend or thank them enough." JM
