Radiated Tortoise | Wallhanging by Matt Patterson | Artists for Conservation 2019

Matt Patterson US

As far back as I can remember I have always had the same two interests, wildlife and art. I loved the outdoors growing up and in my free time I was either out fishing, searching for turtles and snakes or I was painting.

Madera Canyon Gobbler | Wallhanging by Anne Peyton | Artists for Conservation 2019

Anne Peyton US

Observing birds and their habits is a way to discover more about their nature – the motions a Sandhill Crane makes during preening, the way a Golden Eagle walks along the ground. Each of these actions means something for the bird and it is these behaviors and their meanings that I want to convey to the viewer.

Betsy Popp US

I like spending as much time as possible out of doors hiking and biking and taking in the scenery. My art is influenced from my time spent watching and studying those things which I encounter when taking on one of my outdoor adventures.

Troop Leader | Wallhanging by Jerry Ragg | Artists for Conservation 2019

Jerry Ragg US

"Nature is naturally inspiring. It is medicine for the soul. Nature is part of each of us whether we embrace it or not. As a wildlife artist, my goal is to touch a part of the soul that only nature can achieve. Something real, something organic and something that touches the heart."

Summer Dream | Wallhanging by Donald Rainville | Artists for Conservation 2019

Donald Rainville US

I believe a naturally wild landscape is the greatest form of abstraction, and as such, it cannot be truly recreated or transferred as an image: it can only be captured in the emotions it stirs within us.

Favourite Perch | Wallhanging by William Ritchie | Artists for Conservation 2019

William Ritchie AU

In all my works I aim for a sense of realism and expression that captures the subject matter as it was when I experienced it. I try to replicate the feeling imparted through the experience as it appealed to me, whether that be simplistic or complex. I find Nature has so much to offer and unfortunately, more often than not, these offerings go unacknowledged, taken for granted, or are simply not understood.

Carleen Ross CA

While I create I realise that I need to believe that I am capable of accomplishing anything I put my mind to. By finding this truth within myself and facing my fears and standing up to my little self, I can create something beautiful for others to see. It is this beauty that others look upon that helped me find the internal peace and the ability to see more of the beauty that exists within myself.
