This course will look at aspects of a vegan diet and lifestyle, from ethics to health.
We will look at how organic farms and gardens can produce delicious nutritious food veganically, some of the resulting benefits (including better sustainability and environmental quality) and all without animal exploitation.
This course will not be too heavy on the science and hopefully will dispel some myths along the way.
Bio: Originally from Belfast, where he learned his craft, he has lived in County Leitrim now for many years. He is a qualified archaeologist, a historical tour guide and artist. He draws much inspiration from the local scenery of Leitrim, Sligo, Donegal and Fermanagh. He now generally paint in oils. With his landscapes he aims to capture the imagery of light, atmosphere, mood, colour and mystery. With his wildlife paintings he tries to represent the awe and magic of that usually fleeting encounter.
He has had many years’ experience in producing portraits in pencil oils and oil pastels. His work is exhibited at art galleries, community art and solo exhibitions around Ireland and he has served as the artist-in-residence at Lissadell House in County Sligo. He usually works from on-site sketches backed up by a camera. He also works from photographs sent to him for commission work.
