My paintings are a celebration of the privileged place I hold in partnership with my fellow creatures and my Creator. My goal is to re-create the narrative that I read all around me - those interactions or moments that catch my breath and reflect the works of God and His providence throughout all creation. To God be the Glory!

Green Heron and Rainbow Darters | Wallhanging by Rob Dreyer | Artists for Conservation 2018

Rob Dreyer US

Every day it seems, we turn on our media and see pain and strife and ugliness. But that is not the world which we were given. The world we were given is actually extraordinarily ordered and beautiful. My job as an artist is to continually help illuminate that. Every painting I do is defined by that overarching objective. I consider my work to be nothing more than a simple depiction and celebration of the miracles that surround us every day.

Looking Out | Wallhanging by Michael Dumas | Artists for Conservation 2018
Northern Cross | Wallhanging by Michael Dumas | Artists for Conservation 2018

Michael Dumas CA

The underlying purpose of creating has to do with why certain objects inspire attention in the first place, or how they might be used to express a concept. The greater connection between object and idea, the more insightful the work will be, the more truth it will reveal, and not just about the thing painted but about the artist as well. It is all about thinking and feeling.

As a natural history artist for conservation, I strive to highlight birds, animals, botanicals and natural phenomena that too often go unnoticed. We can all be better guardians and good stewards of environments around the world. By helping people connect emotionally with species and habitats through art, my hope is that more individuals will take positive action to protect the biodiversity of our natural world.

Evening Sojourn | Wallhanging by Mary Erickson | Artists for Conservation 2018

Mary Erickson US

There is a spiritual sense of belonging for me when I am out in Nature. With a childlike excitement, I am awed and inspired by our planet. Paintings are my way of sharing its beauty. As an artist I will leave a body of work that represents my lifelong passion and respect for our environment. I believe there will come a day when the only places we will be allowed a glimpse of true nature will be in the parks and preserves we set aside today. My 39-acre residence in North Carolina is slated to...

An Elegant Pair (White-napped Cranes) | Wallhanging by Susan Fox | Artists for Conservation 2018

Susan Fox US

The major themes of my work are the natural world and its wildlife, particularly the country of Mongolia...the animals, land and people. My paintings often combine a realistic depiction of my subjects with a contemporary, expressive design approach which can include the use of traditional and historic symbols and motifs from Mongolian culture. I love being able to share artistically an extraordinary place that has become a second home for me.
