My love for wildlife has brought two main focuses to my work, detailed graphite work and artistic cartography mixed media work.

One of the best ways we artists have of giving back to the world that inspires us is to donate our artwork and our time. I hope that my paintings have and will continue to raise awareness of the important conservation work we all need to do.

Tough Conversation | Wallhanging by Patricia Banks | Artists for Conservation 2018

Patricia Banks CA

"I am intrigued by the fleeting balance between strength and fragility in nature. Drawing inspiration from the natural environment I bear witness to the beauty, interdependence, and sanctity of all creation. I seek to share this glory with viewers so that they may also pause and reflect, and feel as if they are here, in the moment.”

Contemporary Cassowary  | Wallhanging by Suzanne Barrett Justis | Artists for Conservation 2018

Suzanne Barrett Justis US

The artist Gustave Courbet once said, "the beautiful is in nature and it is encountered under most diverse forms of reality. Once it is found, it belongs to art, or rather to the artist who discovers it." I have always been enraptured by the natural world and strive to recreate what moves and excites me with my art.  I have always been captivated by animals and the many " diverse forms of reality" nature holds. As a kid, I was always drawing something, be it the maple tree in the backyard, our...

Kimberly Beck US

Birds connect us to the rhythms of nature.  They help us understand the changing seasons by their comings and goings.  They soar above us and around us and live amongst us in our backyards.  They teach us about our landscape and even define it.  We learn about beauty, grace, persistence, resilience, hope and ourselves when we take notice of the rhythm of the birds. I am personally renewed daily by my experiences observing birds.  I hope you can feel my passion for these beautiful creatures with...

Shoebill Stork | Wallhanging by Cindy Billingsley | Artists for Conservation 2018

Cindy Billingsley US

Animals have a right to a place in the world. We as human make up just a small part of the world. Everything is connected and once different species of animals disappear then more and more will follow. Animals do not have a voice, and as an artist I wanted to try and give them a voice through my art. Artists through centuries have been the observers in a society. Art can make a difference, get people thinking, seeing and hopefully changing ways so that animals can keep and improve their...

The natural world is an amazing thing. From the humble bee and its role in pollination, to the fact that every time an African elephant takes a step, it creates a home for other animals; as its footprint fills with water. Every living thing has a purpose, it exists for a reason, has a role to play and contributes in some way to making the world a beautiful place … unfortunately with one exception – modern man. By painting wildlife and nature, it’s as if I become a part of that beautiful world,...

Loon on the Wing | Wallhanging by Rob Butler | Artists for Conservation 2018

Rob Butler CA

I like to explore the interface of human and animal worlds. My art mostly depicts birds but it is the design, use of colours and emotions a painting conveys rather than its accuracy, that is most interesting. All or some of the proceeds from my art is directed to the Pacific WildLife Foundation to assist with my research and conservation of the ocean, and to AFC for their great support of artists.

Aurora's Lavender, Mute Swans | Wallhanging by Roy Carretta | Artists for Conservation 2018

Roy Carretta CA

One can only stand in awe when witnessing the myriad of natural surroundings and wildlife that abound our precious planet.   The Supreme Intelligence that orchestrates the life force responsible for every natural movement is remarkable to say the least, and commands our undivided reverence.   Nature's harmonic rythym resonates in each and every one of us.  Without it, we are incomplete.  With it, we move together in time - as One.

Home Again | Wallhanging by Wayne Chunat | Artists for Conservation 2018

Wayne Chunat US

My media varies from acrylics and watercolors to oils and intaglio prints. My style varies from realistic to loose and airy impressionism depending on what best portrays the subject and its environment. My inspiration is first-hand observation in the environment, then study specimens, and finally reference photos. My goal is to capture the essence of the animal's movement, habits and cycle of life.

Exploring and describing the magical wonders of Africa are processes that have absorbed me into a thrilling cycle of challenges, accomplishments and further challenges that continually fortify my confidence to paint. This is a journey that I know will lead me towards many new subjects, but my lifelong African experience is so far still proving that around every corner there is a heart stopping new encounter. In my paintings I always attempt to do more than just open a window on a visual...

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.

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.
