“As an artist and environmental advocate, my work is deeply inspired by the natural world, particularly the polar regions.  Through my art, I seek to capture the breathtaking beauty and fragility of these remote landscapes, raising awareness about the urgent need for ocean conservation. My paintings are not just visual expressions but also narratives that reflect the profound connection between humanity and nature. A significant aspect of my practice involves collaborating with scientists on their fieldwork in remote parts of the polar regions. By immersing myself in these expeditions, I gain firsthand insights into the environmental challenges and scientific endeavours aimed at understanding and preserving these critical ecosystems. This unique intersection of art and science allows me to use my artwork as a form of science communication, translating complex research findings into accessible and evocative visual stories. My creative process is deeply intertwined with my experiences in the field. From sketching and painting en plein air to documenting the stark and awe inspiring beauty of glaciers, icebergs, and the diverse landscape, I strive to convey the urgency of environmental stewardship. Through my art, I aim to bridge the gap between scientific inquiry and public engagement, fostering a deeper appreciation for the delicate balance of our planet’s ecosystems. Ultimately, my goal is to inspire a greater connection to the natural world and to advocate for its protection. By highlighting the wonders and vulnerabilities of the polar regions, I hope to ignite meaningful conversations and encourage actions that contribute to a more sustainable and harmonious relationship with our environment. My ultimate goal is to inspire others to seek adventure in nature, and reflect on their role in preserving it”- Meg O’Hara
