You can follow her current expedition to Antarctica on her Antarctica Blog. The last post was on 4th February.
This unique opportunity was awarded to me by the Friends of Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) and the Royal Navy after a selection process.
Rowan Huntley paints the Antactic
Prior to this she has painted rather a lot of frozen land and sea, including:
- the Arctic - this is An Arctic Painting Odyssey by Rowan Huntley (pdf file)
- the peaks and glaciers of the Alps - see this 2007 Exhibition of Alpine Painting by Rowan Huntley at the Alpine Club and this is a link to her gallery of original Alpine paintings
- The Lofoten Isalnds and this page on her website explains the trip
- the area around Ilulissat Icefjord, 250 km north of the Arctic Circle on the west coast of Greenland.
I'm very impressed by the amount of sponsorship she's attracted for her painting trips but I guess that's pretty much essential for trips like these!
Her website also includes some links I've never seen before for nordic specialists!
I'd love to see some of her paintings exhibited in London.
