Though he was born in Macclesfield in 1901, Charles Tunnicliffe’s artistic connections with Anglesey run as deep as any native’s. Growing up on a farm, the young Tunnicliffe developed a passion for nature that informed all of his work. He specialised in naturalistic portrayals of birds and other wildlife, finding a lifetime of inspiration in Anglesey’s unspoilt spaces. Tunnicliffe so loved the island that he moved to Malltraeth in 1947 and remained there until his death in 1979. In recognition of Anglesey’s role in his career, Tunnicliffe bequeathed much of his personal collection to the island. It can now be viewed at Oriel Ynys Môn.
