If you have visited Skomer Island before you may have noticed the array of wildlife that greets you the moment you step off of the boat, you may have also noticed a big concrete wall. A friend of Skomer Island, Rory, kindly agreed to paint a beautiful wildlife mural for Skomer’s landing bay which highlights the island's diverse variety of wildlife species.
Rory had painted a mural in the past for Skomer Island's hostel lounge last year. This was very well received by visitors and staff so we invited him back to do another one to give a warm welcome to island visitors. Rory was on the island for 5 days and painted all day long. We think the result is absolutely fabulous and we hope visitors to the island will appreciate this stunning piece of artwork as well.
A blog for Skomer Island will be posting a piece on the mural shortly. You can find Skomer Island's blog here.
