I have been involved in the organisation of the 4th and 5th International Conference of Poeciliid Biologists. The 2010 conference was held in St Andrews, Scotland, and the 2012 conference at UWI, St Augustine, Trinidad. I provided logos and artwork for mugs and bags for both conferences, some of which are also being utilised for this year's conference in Exeter.
While a postgraduate student in St Andrews, I established the still-running 'Doing Art in the Bell Pettigrew Society' (DABS).
DABS is an informal art group that meets fortnightly to eat, drink and draw in the University's beautiful natural history museum, hosting occasional exhibitions.
You can read more and see some examples of DABS members' artwork here. The group now have a facebook group if anyone in St Andrews is interested in going along and wants to find out more.
I am a keen artist in my spare time. I currently run a natural history art group within the TTFNC.
