Lewis Woodpeckers, Burnt River | Wallhanging by Jon Janosik | Artists for Conservation 2018

Jon Janosik US

My aim in painting has always been the most exact transcription possible of my most intimate sensations of birds in nature. I have tried to present my impressions in what is the most congenial and expressive form achievable from me. I have elected to study birds with brush and paint, attempting to force this often-unwilling medium of paint and ground, to record them. I recall two strong feelings since my childhood: a bond between birds and myself and desire for self-expression with my hands....

ROSIE REFUGE | Wallhanging by Stephen Jesic | Artists for Conservation 2018

Stephen Jesic AU

His extraordinary acrylic painting technique and recent depictions of parrots and macaws has drawn the attention of the Australian fine art materials company Matisse Derivan, the producer of the acrylic paints that Stephen exclusively uses. They now feature his techniques on their bi-monthly internet newsletter and are using his images of exotic macaws in the packaging of their Primary Colour Set of Structure Formula Acrylics and Mediums, soon to be released in the United States.

Captivating | Wallhanging by Mary Jane Jessen | Artists for Conservation 2018

Mary Jane Jessen CA

Humankind is notorious for encroaching on natural waterways and abusing resources. In British Columbia, salmon streams are becoming endangered as human populations grow, and the reality of global warming sets in. Human arrogance leads many to believe they have the knowledge and ability to control nature, in turn leading them to exploit natural life-support systems in order to attain a profit and a degree of personal comfort. Contemporary society’s competitive tensions and materialistic...

The Watchman | Wallhanging by Jason Kamin | Artists for Conservation 2018

Jason Kamin CA

Being interested in the natural world, art has been the reason for my extraordinary journey to both Nepal and  Italy.  Art can forge new friendships and open doors that I might not ever have otherwise thought possible.  And now I create art with ideas that may sound unobtainable, but I know now what art can achieve.

Mumble | Wallhanging by Hans Kappel | Artists for Conservation 2018

Hans Kappel DE

Through my work I wish to create appreciation for the preservation of nature and the environment. I would like to try to promote the conservation of our natural resources in times of fascination with virtual worlds which seem strangely alienated from nature and sterile to me. Real nature, however, is disappearing and, as I see it, often in small steps which go unnoticed.

The North Calls Them | Wallhanging by Valentin Katrandzhiev | Artists for Conservation 2018

Valentin Katrandzhiev US

Communicating with nature inspires me to paint. It is my hope that what I paint on the canvas I can share what I have experienced with others. Then it is my desire that they are inspired by what I have painted to discover nature for themselves or experience for a moment through my art, the wonder of nature. To know, to love and care about it's preservation.

Returning Visitor | Wallhanging by Justin Kellner | Artists for Conservation 2018

Justin Kellner US

The paintings give an impression of the natural areas I've explored, while informing the viewer about their environmental fragility. Very sensitive to their environments, birds are often a good indicator of the health of a particular ecosystem. In my paintings, I combine aggressive, abstract brushstrokes and textures with realistically rendered birds to create spaces that give the impression of erosion, change and isolation.  While my work is informed by my research of environmental issues, my...

Refugia: Florida Scrub Jay | Wallhanging by Megan Kissinger | Artists for Conservation 2018

Megan Kissinger US

Go off the path, see the Orb Weaver Spider catch breakfast in her web. Dig up a handful of muck from the ground and see a hundred creatures in the tiny real estate of your palm. Canoe into a cypress head and hear the pops and echos of a million insects, fish and birds going about their daily work of finding—and being food. When I paint, I try to convey that feeling of Life and the paradox that it is, at once, large and small, fertile and barren, safe and dangerous.

We are often told to 'stop and smell the roses.' As a visual artist, David's work reminds us instead to stop and LOOK at the beauty that surrounds us. 'God is an amazing designer; the closer you look, the more there is to see.'

I love the calm that I find in nature and the excitement of a chance encounter with wildlife. Having spent most of my life among the hustle and bustle of the modern world, I want to create a window into the natural world through my art.

Evening Glow | Wallhanging by Joseph Koensgen | Artists for Conservation 2018

Joseph Koensgen CA

The rich natural world has been my inspiration for as long as I can remember. Whenever I have thought about expressing this passion, it has always been through the pencil and paint brush. From the smallest of song birds to the most colourful and majestic of creatures, they are all so diverse and interesting that I am inspired to learn, and to paint. My art is simply an outward expression of my love for the natural world.

Aviatrice | Wallhanging by Sandi Lear | Artists for Conservation 2018

Sandi Lear AU

Using allegory to draw a corollary between the subject and the human condition, often depicting endangered species and the ocean, I strive to capture the essence of the subject with exquisite focus, leaving the remainder in semi-abstracted form.  The subject must be soulful, I work spontaneously, provoking an emotion, a connection with the viewer without necessarily telling the whole story -  the viewer is invited to explore their memory or emotional connection to the work. The process of...

Sleeping Beauty | Wallhanging by Laura Levitsky | Artists for Conservation 2018

Laura Levitsky CA

Art is where I go to explore and express.  I get lost in it.  It is the only thing I seem to have an infinite patience for as I can sit for hours and meticulously paint every hair of lichen growing on a tree. For me, it is important to include the smallest of pixie-up lichen or the damselfly resting on a blade of grass as I feel it assists in capturing the whole story and hopefully exposes it to the viewer as an important part of the whole picture, not just in the painting, but in nature itself...

Pelican Profile | Wallhanging by Patsy Lindamood | Artists for Conservation 2018

Patsy Lindamood US

Most of my pieces are representational, rendered in exhaustive detail. A self-taught artist, marked by strong, colorful, yet infinitely detailed compositions. In addition to the wildlife pieces based on my own research photography, I have also completed a number of pet and human portraits. I hike nature preserves and national parks to observe, study the behavior of, and photographically record wildlife in their natural environments, then develop my paintings in the studio from my photos....
