The BiG Scuba Podcast… with Grace Marquez.. Fine Art for water lovers

Published

on

The BiG Scuba duo, Gemma and Ian chat to Grace Marquez,  a visual artist and creative consultant living Canada. She works primarily in acrylic paint on canvas or wood boards and her subjects include the diverse and rich marine life and environments found underwater.

Her work is 100% informed and inspired by her love and her passion as an avid cave, technical diver and active scuba instructor. She enjoys sharing the wonder of the underwater world with new divers. While she has dived all over the world diving reefs, mines, and caves, she is happiest diving the many shipwrecks in the cold water of the Great Lakes.

The BiG Scuba Podcast Episode 173: DEEP – Making Humans Aquatic

Published

on

Gemma and Ian visited DEEP and were hosted by Phil Short, Research Diving, Training Lead, and were given a tour of the facility at Avonmouth and then over to the Campus at Tidenham.

DEEP is evolving how humans access, explore and inhabit underwater environments. Through flexible, modular and mobile subsea habitats that allow humans to live undersea up to 200m for up to 28 days, work-class submarines, and advanced human performance research, DEEP completely transforms what we are capable of underwater and how we conduct undersea science and research.
