I can hardly believe we're just days away from September, but as the season slows down, I've found a few moments to reflect on another spectacular summer in Shetland.
Summer at Sarah Kay Arts is a balancing act featuring sea swimming, sunsets, studio visits, creating new artwork; all combined with parenting.
In this blog, I'm sharing some new pieces I've been busy working on which are now live on my website, as well as telling you about an exciting project that's close to my heart that I was fortunate enough to be involved with.
Orcas sightings are becoming increasingly more common and documented here in Shetland over the summer months thanks to the power of social media. It's such a privilege to witness these incredible animals in the wild, especially in Shetland.
One of most requested collection from visitors to my studio is my Resin Art Orca Collection, so I've been busy creating new pieces to add to it over the summer.
Being surrounded by the sea here in Shetland, I care deeply about protecting and preserving it. Ghost fishing UK are a charity that works to remove ghost fishing gear that is damaging our environment and sea-life and recently visited Shetland.
As I beach clean and witness very disturbing evidence of tiny plastic nurdles all around Shetland, I was keen to support them on their visit to Shetland. I attended their evening event to find out more about how pollution impacts us here in Shetland and I was delighted that they used one of my photos as part of their event promotion.
