‘Symphony of Light’ May 2022 - Nearly finished and full reveal over the weekend. Such a joy to paint 💚 Many thanks to Nick Card who kindly let me use his wonderful photo of a heron to help the creative process. Wish I was still in Orkney and loooking forward to more precious time alongside the team at Ness of Brodgar . Had a wonderful trip there last year along with Anna King where we went to meet the team who found the 5000 year old fingerprint. More recently they have also discovered a handprint ! Wonderful memories. ... See MoreSee Less

SPOT TIME look back. I have so many people still to announce and also share, however, I shall mix it up over the next year to celebrate the diversity and generosity of all the people, communties and organisations that have participated on #spottimespottime #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #fingerprintofunity #workingtogether January 2019 Houses of Parliament ‘ Happy to participate on an artwork documenting this time and everyone unified’ Sebastian Newbold Coe, Baron Coe, CH, KBE, Hon FRIBA (born 29 September 1956), often referred to as Seb Coe,is a British politician and former track and field athlete. As a middle-distance runner, Coe won four Olympic medals, including the 1500 metres gold medal at the Olympic Games in 1980 and 1984. He set nine outdoor and three indoor world records in middle-distance track events – including, in 1979, setting three world records in the space of 41 days – and the world record he set in the 800 metres in 1981 remained unbroken until 1997. Coe's rivalries with fellow Britons Steve Ovett and Steve Cram dominated middle-distance racing for much of the 1980s.#sport #track #olympic #worldathletics #lord #field #sportsman #politics #brexit #art #timeinhistory #fingerprint #onespecies #oneworld ...

‘Symphony of Light’ May 2022 This is the beginning base of my next commissioned painting which will hopefully be completed in a couple of weeks time as I find time around SPOTtimespotTIME and family. It is a meeting of land,sea and all life inclusion and global migration and transition where they all work as a symphony and represent a transcendent understanding of the concept ‘ We are One’ All my paintings work in three together in time unison. As the painter there is always a part of the narrative that transpires. Then there is the world and comment and finally the owner who has commissioned - a story and narrative for them. Each painting has its anchor and home for a time relevant in meaning to the owner. This painting comes at a time where the artwork SPOTtimespotTIME starts to secure partnering to ensure an awareness of #conservationmeanslife #artaunifyinglanguage #workingtogether #transcendent #unity #kindness and #love #twowhiteherons #whiteheron #wreath #pyramid #sun #migration #onespecies Should you want a painting in association with SPOTtimespotTIME I shall be taking commissions until March 2023 💚☀️🌏 ...

It is huge honour that I announce the participation of Geoffrey Dashwood to the emerging artwork #SPOTtimespotTIMENow in its last year of inclusive physical participation - and a seemingly endless list of humble and generous participants - Thank you to a Geoffrey Dashwood for embracing and creating such wonderful creative expressions of the wonderful natural world around us. ‘Perhaps we all associate finger prints with some degree of negativity- primarily a device for exposing criminals. How wonderful/ ingenious that Elaine has devised a creative and thought provoking way of using the same applied science alluding to more positive and enlightened aspects of the human psyche’ - Geoffrey Dashwood www.geoffreydashwood.com/ Sculptor - Artist adding his #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME #conservationmeanslife #artaunifyinglanguage #alllife #transcendingdifference #art #workingtogether #fingerprintofunity #nature #birds Geoffrey was born in Hampshire, England in 1947.At the age of fifteen he won a scholarship to study fine art at Southampton College of Art, but left after a brief period, preferring to study directly from nature.He worked in varied occupations to support himself and experimented in various art mediums and techniques in his spare time. His last employment was with the Forestry Commission where he was engaged as a keeper in the New Forest. He also became the unofficial artist in residence for his employers. Dashwood left the Forestry Commission in his mid-twenties to pursue a freelance career in art and he soon received commissions for illustrations and design work, whilst concurrently drawing and painting independently.A sculptor of birds in bronze, eliminating all superficial detail to attain refined forms with smooth surfaces, enhanced by the application of coloured and multi-coloured patinas. Although his work can be placed within the genre of wildlife art, Dashwood has transcended the subject matter and his bronzes are firmly established in the wider field of contemporary art.Scale from small life size pieces to monumental.Exhibited internationally. ...

‘ I am not afraid of the routeJe nas par peur de la route’ Chris Hankey Christopher Hankey - artist adding his #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME #conservationmeanslife #artaunifyinglanguage #art #workingtogether #transcendingdifference #onespecies #oneplanet #alllife Chris added his fingerprint in September 202O whilst he was living and painting around The Isles of Scilly and also again in Feb 2022 as he learnt about his artist residency in chrishankey-artist.com/Latest blog post.....chrishankey-artist.com/index.php/blog/Landscape painting and seascape painting of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is how I express my creativity, My love of nature. I have always admired artists like JMW Turner, Emile Nolde, Joan Eardley and William McTaggert. Artists that not only portray the physicality of nature as well as giving their artworks a lyrical, sensual quality but also imbue the paintings with a particular philosophy, in a profound sense artists are the conscience of society. Something I always strive to achieve in my own paintings. It is important to me to imbue the paintings with a sense of awe and respect for nature. That we are a part of nature. My painting is about taking time to sit and reflect on nature to celebrate nature. This one planet that is our home, To fundamentally realise that we have a responsibility to look after this planet……. Please read more about Chris’s creative process and learn more about his travels as he cycles around our wonderful planet responding to the time and beauty he sees and feels around him. Chris very much works and responds to an instinctive creative pathway - touching ancestors and connecting all life. #chrishankey #artist #instincts #ancestors #life #cycling #artandcycling #bike #fossils #theancients ...

I shall post more photos and quotes tomorrow. People came into The Embassy and added their fingerprints anonymously and there was also a lady visiting The Embassy called Tetiana who had arrived from the Ukraine ( Kharkiv) the day before. She explained she had friends here in the UK who had offered her a safe home. ‘ I came yesterday from the Ukraine. My son is still lives there in the Ukraine. He is a musician, a piano player and a composer. I hope he is able to keep safe-they don’t use men without the training- His name is Alex’ Tetiana I had blue and yellow inks with me and Tetiana asked if I had red. ‘ You should have red because of all the bloodshed, it would be a more honest documentation of what is happening’ Tetiana Tetiana #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME outside of the #ukrainianembassylondon #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #alllife #transcendingdifference a #onespecies #oneorganism #nature #love #respect #kharkiv ...

The Embassy kindly directed him to The Ukrainian Social Club. He was more than happy to lay his fingerprint. ‘ The bravery of the Ukrainians is amazing. The Russian protestors and their bravery is also amazing! The bravery of the Polish fighters in the 2nd world war was incredible and it is because of this as a man who is aging and with restricted mobility that ai want to volunteer as a suicide bomber’ - Younger looking Jonny. ‘ My mother and father live in The Ukraine and I am very sad, my english is not so good’ Ludmila talking about her parents who are still in Chernivtsi in The Ukraine 🇺🇦 She went on to say that they are old and she is very worried. adding his #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME outside of the #ukrainianembassylondon #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #alllife #transcendingdifference a #onespecies #oneorganism #nature #love #respect ...

15th March 2022 Had the pleasure to meet David Lindo yesterday afternoon- ‘ Remember that conservation starts on your doorstep’ David Lindo @theurbanbirder @linneansociety @wwtworldwide adding his #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #alllife #onespecies #oneorganism #transcendingdifferenece David is a naturalist, writer, broadcaster, speaker, photographer, wildlife tour leader and educationist.

Some of you may also know David as The Urban Birder. Encouraging people in towns and cities to get connected to nature through his TV appearances, talks and articles.

David had been interested in Natural History and in particular birds before he could walk. In his book ‘The Urban Birder’ his mum recalls him going missing, aged 3, during a family gathering. A search party was dispatched and Mrs Lindo eventually found her son standing outside a churchyard, watching Magpies.

David now travels the world telling people about the amazing urban wildlife that’s on their doorsteps.More information regarding David can be found on his website www.theurbanbirder.com . He is a vice-president of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust. In 2021, the Linnean Society of London presented Lindo with the H. H. Bloomer Award, given to an amateur naturalist deemed to have made "an important contribution to the knowledge of natural history". #theurbanbirder #naturalhistory #national bird #aldernaywildlifetrust #davidlindo #writer #theurbanbirder #birds #nature #wildlife #wildlifephotography ...

As many of you know, before becoming an MP I dedicated my working life to ending violence against women. While my job has changed, this mission is far from completed. So I thought I'd write an update on my continuing work in this area.Violence against women and girls is still rife in our society. Last year 141 women in the UK were killed by a male suspect. This shocking statistic reflects the wider problem of misogyny. I am currently working with Avon & Somerset Police on a project to tackle violence against women and girls. After I wrote to the Police last year, they have asked me to lead a working group on the theme of Sport and Culture. This group brings together a broad range of organisations to discuss how we end a culture of misogyny which leads to violence. Proposals from this group will feed into a regional police summit this spring.This group includes running clubs, professional sports teams, nightclub owners, tourism organisations and theatres, among others. These organisations, working together, can have a huge influence on our culture.Some fascinating ideas are emerging from these discussions. Many of these organisations are showing real leadership by challenging the culture of misogyny and violence.Sadly, such leadership is lacking when it comes to the Tory government.Last week Labour held a debate on rape conviction rates, which have plummeted in recent years. Only 1.3% of rape cases are ever prosecuted. The Tories have effectively decriminalised rape. Labour is committed to securing justice for survivors of violence. We‘ll fast-track rape cases, toughen sentences and raise conviction rates with a Survivors Support Package. For those few rape cases that are currently prosecuted, victims can expect years of waiting for justice, with the typical rape case now taking more than 1,000 days before completion. Part of the problem is the huge backlog in the courts. Labour will clear this by extending court hearing dates and using more ‘Nightingale’ courts to get waiting times under control.One year one from the murder of Sarah Everard, women are still unsafe. Women are still looking over our shoulders, while most attackers walk free. The underlying belief systems and attitudes are still prevalent and need challenging. This is not good enough. As your MP, I promise I will keep fighting to prevent violence against women and girls and challenge misogyny in all its forms. ... See MoreSee Less

So proud to announce that Emma Manton has agreed to add her #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife. Emma who is about to embark acting on a tour of @michaelmorpugo ‘s @privpeacestage Private Peaceful which is performing its premiere @nottmplayhouse from Wed 16th February and travelling the UK until June 2022. Emma Manton is a respected actress known for her work on Royal Shakespeare Company: Love's Labour's Lost (2015), The Office (2001) and Royal Shakespeare Company: Love's Labour's Won (2015) and more recently www.runningwithrefugees.com‘I had no idea that when I agreed to join a friend on a short jog in 2014 that it would start a chain of events that would change my life. I was performing on stage in Stratford-upon-Avon when a colleague convinced me to join her on a two-mile run. I did the two miles but I had to walk twice and I was so ashamed. I thought I had to do something about it...By 2016, I was ready to try and run the London Marathon. Throughout the previous summer, I had been watching with horror as the media filled with pictures of children's bodies washed up on Greece beaches and, particularly, the now infamous image of 3 year old Aylan Kurdi. I knew it was an issue I could get behind.I spoke to a few friends in the Theatre world and, before long, my marathon fundraising had spiralled into something much bigger. The Royal National Theatre donated the use of the Lyttelton Theatre, 7 of the best playwrights in the UK wrote and donated material and 36 actors offered their services. UNHCR made one piece, by Jenifer Toksvig, into this amazing film with Cate Blanchett, Peter Capaldi, Keira Knightley, Juliet Stevenson and others.On February 14th 2016, we staged 'Moving Stories' and raised over £32,000 pounds for the UN refugee agency (UNHCR). In April, I ran in London and was bitten with the marathon bug...!’ #onespecies #kindness #artsocialdocument #one #amal #refugees #actors #actor #actress #emmamanton #thestage #michaelmorpurgo #privatepeaceful #humanitarian #conservation #oneplanet #love #weareone ...

Take action for Tokitae / Sk’aliCh’elh-tenaut-There are serious concerns for the health and safety of orca Lolita/Tokitae at Miami Seaquarium. We desperately need an independent third party to come in and assess Lolita's health. Please take a moment to send an email to the following:• NOAA, Southeast Fisheries Science Center: sefsc.webmaster@noaa.gov• Mayor Levine Cava: mayor@miamidade.gov• USDA Florida Field Station: bryan.kluever@usda.gov•County Commissioner District 7, Raquel Regalado: district7@miamidade.govmaria.nardi@miamidade.govjimmy.morales2@miamidade.gov-You can use the following example text in your emails:Dear (add recipient name here), I am sure you are aware of the growing concerns about the well-being of orca Lolita/Tokitae at Miami Seaquarium. A whistle-blower has revealed that Lolita is ill with pneumonia and is not doing very well. Drone footage from a few days ago shows the terrible state Lolita's tank is in. All this follows the recent report from the USDA about all the ways in which Miami Seaquarium is failing to look after the animals properly. Miami Seaquarium is outdated, it is in disrepair and public opinion is turning against keeping cetaceans in captivity. There has long been a plan in place to safely move Lolita to her home waters of the Salish Sea, where her family still roams free. She would have her own safe sanctuary there to live out the rest of her days. It's been 52 years since she was captured as a young orca. Brutally stolen from her family and the ocean. Isn't it about time we give back to her what was so viciously taken from her? First and foremost it is of the utmost importance that her health is checked by an independent third party. Miami Seaquarium has kept her hidden for the past 6 months and is not very forthcoming about the state she is really in. She is not safe at Miami Seaquarium and we call for an immediate third party assessment of her health and the retirement of Lolita to her home waters! Best wishes, (add your name here) _Caption credit: Many thanks to our friends at Dolphin Freedom UK#United4Lolita #SalishSeaDaughter #UntilLolitaIsHome ... See MoreSee Less

15th December 2022 ‘ We need to build a future that is regenerative- rebuilding nature and humanity’ Dr Mike Maunder Executive Director of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, based in the University of Cambridge Judge Business School. @cambridgeuniversity #cambridgeconservationinitiative adding his #fingerprint to #spottimespottime #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #transcendingdifference #allspecies #oneorganism #one #weareone #printofunity #fingerprintofunity #artsocialdocument Thank you 🙏 ‘ I started my conservation career studying horticulture and plant taxonomy and developed a love for island endemic plants, later doing a PhD on the conservation management of threatened plants at the University of Reading. Whilst at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew I developed a set of international plant and habitat conservation partnerships with a focus on East Africa and oceanic islands. I have kept my deep interest in tropical conservation through working with the National Tropical Botanical Garden in Hawaii, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens and Florida International University in Miami, the Mohamed Bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund and the conservation network of the Eastern Africa Plant Red List Authority. Having worked on the extinction frontline in places like Hawaii, I am deeply committed to the restoration of biodiversity and I am happiest working in the hybrid zones between culture, science, policy, business and conservation delivery. One of my priorities is working with the next generation of conservation practitioners, they are proving to be cross-disciplinary, agile and bold!’ ... See MoreSee Less

Young people may have been least affected by the Covid virus directly, but mental health impact of last two years has been devastating for this generation. You can see it in scientific studies and I see it in my own inbox. I’m in regular contact with more and more young people – and their parents – who are desperate for help but struggling to get it.As part of Children’s Mental Health Week (7-13 February), I’m launching a campaign for better mental health support in Bristol schools and a guarantee that young people needing mental health treatment will get it within a month. New data published this week shows two in three (69%) children referred for mental health treatment in the Bristol area are waiting more than four weeks to be seen.I know the local NHS and other mental health services in Bristol are under immense pressure, thanks to callous Tory cuts over the last decade. Right now, some young people are waiting many months to get the help they need with terrible consequences for their mental health and development.I am asking government to- Guarantee mental health treatment for young people within a month of referral- Put an open access mental health hub for children and young people in every community, with early intervention and drop-in services- Ensure specialist mental health support in every school, to support pupils and resolve problems before they escalate. This plan would see a full-time mental health professional in every secondary school and a part time professional in every primary school.As part of this campaign, I want to hear from young people from all secondary schools my constituency and visit a wide range of organisations providing mental health support in the Bristol area.If you live in my constituency of Bristol West you can sign up to updates and share your views on mental health support here: docs.google.com/forms/d/1kLnYdljdhqDO4IjUOQYybN9gSTu0PvJuvReEATU91gg/ ...

So sad to hear David Sassoli - President of the European Parliament passed away on the 11th January. He was known for taking up the cause of migrants who died crossing the Mediterranean and dissidents such as Alexei Navalny, who is taking on the Russian government from a jail cell.I met him briefly on the 29th January 2020 at the European Parliament. He added his fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME at 8.27 pm and Liliani at 8.29 pmIt was at the end of a very sad day in the European Parliament and as I was leaving I saw an interview in the media area. David was sat with Liliani Segre (Born in 1930 into a Milanese family of Jewish origins, in 1938 Segre was expelled from her primary school after the promulgation of the Italian Racial Laws. In 1943 she was arrested with her family and deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp. The only survivor among her relatives, with the end of the war in 1945 she returned to Milan. After decades of silence, in the 1990s she started to speak to the public, especially young students, about her experience.) Together after the interview I waited with their team and asked politely for them to add their fingerprints to a work celebrating unity, working together and celebrating the respect of all life species. David said he was ‘ Very happy to to be part of this important documentation and Liliani said ‘ Transcending Difference’. In the short time we were together he was warm, generous, interested in the artwork and took time on this historical day to lay his fingerprint to sit alongside everyone and all life.I am so proud to have met such a kind man. #SPOTtimespotTIME @europeanparliament #kindness #legacy #conservationmeanslife #artaunifyinglanguage #alllifespecies #oneplanet #respect #love ...

SPOTtimespotTIME Art Social Document of ‘ Our Time ‘  SPOTtimespotTIME BackgroundElaine Robinson has been developing an installation artwork based around identity by the gathering of fingerprints from people of all walks of life, since March 2023. The Artist intends that when the last fingerprint has been gathered in March 2023 , it will used as a platform to assist in raising funds for conservation, a cause that links us all. The artwork documents (over what will be an 8 year period )our individual identities increasing a common need to urgently conserve the Earth's biosphere. The artwork once completed will act as an ongoing vehicle to raise funds collectively for conservation around the world.  Thank you to all participants. I promise to post on social media more diligently again after Christmas and New Year. Please forgive the delay in posting your photo and quote. #conservation #art #transcendent #conservationmeanslife #onespecies #oneplanet #artaunifyinglanguage #Artists #sustainabilitymatters #biosphere #biodiversity #timeandplace #timecapsule #alllife 💚🌏#fingerprints #prints #EarthOptimism ...

‘We are all part of the natural world, we can all make a difference on building a reciprocal harmonious relationship with it. Find those connections to nature wherever you are. It can be as simple as a moment to appreciate a flower or the clouds, …this will tell you why we should care’ @tomshepherdartist adding his #fingerprint to #SPOTtimespotTIME #artaunifyinglanguage #conservationmeanslife #alllife #sittingequally The #eco artwork documenting (over what will be an 8 year period )our individual identities increasing a common need to urgently conserve the Earth's biosphere. The artwork once completed will act as an ongoing vehicle to raise funds collectively for conservation around the world. Tom started off his art career creating custom artwork on guitars using graffiti pens. Making a move towards a brush and more traditional mediums opened up a whole new world to Tom, and he hasn’t looked back since. He loves to paint in acrylics and oils, and more recently has started exploring watercolour. Whilst Tom loves painting a wide variety of subjects, especially if the light is doing something interesting, he is always drawn back to the place where his first two passions met; painting wildlife, in particular birds. "The free flowing and immediate nature of watercolour seems to lend itself so well to capturing the fleeting moments of wildlife; along with their movement, character and colours"Tom's work has become widely collected in the UK and more more recently, internationally. He has been a highly commended finalist in the World renowned Wildlife Artist of the Year, on several occasions.Fund Raising for WildlifeWhere possible he likes to combine his art work with conservation efforts close to his heart. As well as involvement with various group exhibitions geared towards raising funds for wildlife and conservation; he also contributes a portion of sales each year to UK based Organisations such as WWT (Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust); and to date has raised multiple thousands of pounds for these causes.#nature #wildlife #naturalworld #art #tomshephard #birds # ...
