Artreach Studios felt that exploring the Manx marine environment would be an incredible subject for a creative project.
Visual art is Artreach Studios' area of expertise, with founders, Colette Gambell and Kate Jerry inspired by the sea and its creatures, which they both use as a source in their own art work and in delivering workshops.
As partners of Biosphere Isle of Man, Artreach Studios approached us to work together to deliver something broad to celebrate and educate a wider audience about our Marine environment, linking with others around the world and promoting the importance the sea plays in keeping our ecosystems healthy, and us healthy.
'It seemed natural that having recently moved to a premises in Peel, near the Harbour, that our attention turned to things to do with the sea!' - Artreach Studios.
