A new exhibition showcasing the work of an award-winning wildlife artist will be unveiled at an Isle of Man museum.

Wildlife - An artist's view by Dr Jeremy Paul from Colby, opens at the Manx Museum in Douglas on Saturday.

Dr Paul, a three-time category winner of the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition, was a marine biologist before becoming a wildlife artist.

The exhibition will run along side the publication of Dr Paul's book of the same name, documenting his career.

The previous year his painting, Southern Ocean Wandering Albatross, won the frozen planet category of the competition- and in 2010 his painting of an otter won in the British mammals category.
