Coastal Birds of the Isle of Man by Jeremy Paul
Isle of Man – Jeremy Paul stamps celebrating the conservation work of Manx BirdLife.
We are honoured to present this set of six stamps featuring the work of renowned local wildlife artist Jeremy Paul. This, our eleventh stamp issue with the award winning artist, celebrates the important conservation work of the Manx BirdLife census.
This collection features the following six species of bird found on the Island which are Birds of Conservation Concern in the British Isles; Oystercatcher, Eider, Little Tern, Fulmar, Black Guillemot and Razorbill.
The works featured on the stamps capture a moment in time, creating a sense of quiet stillness in which wild birds or animals are seen, undisturbed by the viewer. These atmospheric works are an accurate portrayal of the birds in their natural environment.
Lancashire born, Jeremy Paul has lived on the Isle of Man for many years now. He originally trained as a marine biologist and is a completely self-taught artist, the essence of his work being the accurate portrayal of wildlife in its environment.
