As promised, here is a bit more on the three outstanding artists who will lead a course at Schumacher College, Devon, in May.
1. Lynne Hull, environmental artist:

Lynne Hull is known as a ‘trans-species artist’ – meaning her art is centred on nature as a whole, rather than just on human beings. She views nature as being of primary importance, and not merely a subject for an art object. She creates bird roosts and habitat for wildlife, together with community and educational projects, and more recently she has begun to describe herself as an ‘eco-atonement artist’ for obvious reasons.
You can find out about Lynne Hull’s intriguing work on her website: and also on Green Museum – http://greenmuseum.org/c/aen/Bios/hull2.php
