Award-winning wildlife artist Dr Jeremy Paul is to star in a new digital art exhibition in the Isle of Man.

The Colby-based artist recently won the 'best of category' in the final of the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year 2012.

The work entitled African Jacana won the World Birds section of the competition, beating more than 1,000 entries from all over the world.

"I am excited to display my photographs as opposed to the paintings I am known for," said the former marine biologist.

The artist will be displaying photographs from a trip to the Arctic in 2008.

He said: "My photographs are predominantly abstract compositions of the Arctic ice. It is very sculptural and when responding to the incredible light out there makes for some stunning images.

"I am known for my wildlife paintings but I am really looking forward to displaying this collection."
