I believe everyone should be able to experience the benefits of getting into the great outdoors, locally or futher afield. I spend as much time as I can in the wilderness, create art inspired by my adventures, and volunteer at Venture Scotland, a charity working with young adults on a lifechanging one year self development programme in the Scottish outdoors.
To support their work, and to challenge myself, I plan to hike 370 kms/ 230 miles from Fort William to Cape Wrath in April/May 2020, through the remotest and most rugged wildernesses in the UK, and create artworks about the experience. I will be walking solo for most of it, joined in a couple of stages by people meeting me to resupply. Along the way I will wild camp and stay in bothies.
When I’m not navigating bogs or the wild scottish weather, I will be sketching along the route, and afterwards, and will sell these artworks to raise more funds for VS.
I absoutely can’t wait to set off on this adventure! Please feel free to follow and share this page to raise awareness of the project and the work of Venture Scotland.
I appreciate any help, support, questions, encouragement and donations. Thank you! Kathx
