Puffin Parade 2023
We were so pleased to be invited back to paint a puffin for the 2023 Puffin Parade, after painting a goat for the Golden Guernsey Goat Trail in 2021. Our goat was called Bejulicully – learn more about her here.
The puffin parade is in aid of Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA. A whole flock of puffins have been painted by various businesses and organisations from around the island. All the puffins have been displayed in different locations around Guernsey.
You can download an app that you can use to hunt for all the puffins- those who find all the puffins are entered into a prize draw. Autism Guernsey invite app users to make a donation. More info about the app here and you can donate here.
We have been paired with sponsors – Island Health, who have been great to work with, and neatly tying in with our own values around art and colour for mental health. The turquoise is one of their brand colours, perfect for a puffin.
The intricate hand drawn patterns are inspired by lichens – our reference photos were taken from the puffins’ winter home, Iceland, on a trip in the summer of 2022.
In Sept the puffins will be auctioned off and will go to their forever homes. All proceeds will go to Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA.
