Canada Geese | Wallhanging by Susan Gosevitz | Artists for Conservation 2018

Susan Gosevitz CA

I see art as a collaboration with nature. Together we create the real and sublime in one, providing a return from hectic and stress, from consumption and chaos, to meditative simplicity. I paint scenes of natural moments to wake up, to calm and to bring a sense of peace. My paintings reflect a deep respect for nature and the wildlife that depend on its' integrity.

Powerless | Wallhanging by Fiona Goulding | Artists for Conservation 2018

Fiona Goulding NZ

"My two great passions in life are painting and animal welfare. I believe that all animal species should thrive in their natural habitat and be free to live independently.  Painting allows me to strengthen the connection I feel with nature, particularly birds and animals, and provides a channel to highlight threats they face".

I am drawn to raw areas that have been preserved from excessive development.  I am at peace in the untamed wilderness.  I am inspired by the life force that connects all things.

A Lion Sleeps Tonight | Wallhanging by Gemma Gylling | Artists for Conservation 2018

Gemma Gylling US

From the time I was a little girl I always wanted to create art. My art is inspired by my love and passion of wildlife and animals. The Animals speak to me in a very special way and because of that I try to help them speak to you through my art. I strive to portray the velvet touch of their fur, the sound of their roar or the plight they are living to simply exist. My animal art is created by applying several layers of colored pencil on suede mat board or a sanded surface. Each creation can...

My main concern is saltwater game fishes but I also love other species and their habitat in both freshwater and saltwater. I’m interested in the relation from mountain forests to the ocean, the relation between human activities and the nature.

Rainforest | Wallhanging by Oenone Hammersley | Artists for Conservation 2018

Oenone Hammersley US

Colour and light are used to emphasize a vanishing world of wilderness that implores one to take notice, appreciate the rare and raw beauty about us, and allow our imagination to roam about the abstract compositions symbolizing the unsettled and unsettling world in which man alters nature.

Julia Hargreaves CA

Today, I walk into an art store and feel the same thrill I felt receiving my first box of paints at the age of seven. I am passionate about wildlife and feel honoured to spend my days replicating what I see and feel each time I take to the trails or simply sit on my deck watching the quails waddle by.

The Incredible Journey | Wallhanging by Gary Hodges | Artists for Conservation 2018

Gary Hodges GB

Welcome to my art. I hope you enjoy looking at my drawings and celebrating nature as I do. I can't imagine drawing animals without giving something back and I'm proud that since 1987 my art has contributed well over $1,000,000 to wildlife conservation and animal welfare charities. In April 2016 I held my major charity exhibition Heart & Soul in central London. I am thrilled to have raised almost a quarter of a million dollars for my two favourite charities through the sales of my drawings...

A Wary Old Bird | Wallhanging by Mary Louise Holt | Artists for Conservation 2018

Mary Holt US

    Portraiture and Painting the human figure have always been of great interest to me as an artist. But my other passion is for natural history. I am particularly interested in the relationship between humans and nature in a historical context. My work often combines figurative, landscape and wild, native creatures within a single painting. Each tells a compelling story about humanity's relationship with nature through the centuries. My work is carefully researched and based on historical fact...

On the Edge | Wallhanging by Debbie Hughbanks | Artists for Conservation 2018

Debbie Hughbanks US

I feel that animals are an extremely important part of our existence and should be treasured and celebrated by us as human beings. That is what I attempt to do through my art. I think a quote by Albert Einstein put it best . . ."Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty."

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

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...

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.

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.
