Happy Chappy | Wallhanging by Geraldine Simmons | Artists for Conservation 2019

Geraldine Simmons AU

When I draw wildlife the eyes are what I notice first. They mesmerise me. Once I have drawn the eyes the rest of my work follows. I aspire to show not just an "animal" but a living , breathing being who shows intelligence and has feelings - who belongs to a family and plays an essential role within our ecology that balances our intricate web of life.

Brainstorming | Wallhanging by Karin Snoots | Artists for Conservation 2019

Karin Snoots US

The driving force of my work is to share with the viewer the inherent aesthetic beauty that all living things possess, be it raging surf or a tranquil pond. I want to express my excitement over the incredible things I am so fortunate to encounter. I strive to capture the natural setting by experiencing it first hand. What I find so amazing are interactions with the natural world that I would have otherwise missed, i.e. the company of a little fox or a conversation with a proud raven.

Broken Silence | Wallhanging by Linda Sorensen | Artists for Conservation 2019

Linda Sorensen CA

"As an artist , I am inspired by nature's many seasons and infinite moods of color,light and form. It is here that paint and canvas come together and renew my soul". Linda Sorensen was one of the most talented and dedicated students I had the pleasure to teach and know in my 20 years of teaching.            Her work is strong and bold, starting with nature and putting her distinctive creative stamp on it. Art begins where nature ends. Linda's art was always clearly "Sorensen" The clear stamp of...

Seaweed Dance or Into the Forest | Wallhanging by Cindy Sorley-Keichinger | Artists for Conservation 2019

Cindy Sorley-Keichinger CA

In today's busy world, it helps to stop and smell the roses.  Gives a person a chance to recharge their batteries.  The best medicine for this is a walk in Nature, as found in several studies.  I hope that my work of painting landscapes and Wildlife helps with this; and gets people to notice the world around them.  If people are engaged with the world, they help protect the other inhabitants.

Uta Strelive CA

For me art is an endless journey of discovery, exploration, experimentation, learning and pure joy. Nature is a prime source of inspiration for fulfilling my passion for art.

Pin Point Landing | Wallhanging by Judy Studwell | Artists for Conservation 2019

Judy Studwell US

Living in the shadow of the Tucson Mountains I am passionate about preserving the Sonoran desert. An African safari in 2013 inspired me to share my amazing experiences photographing the African landscape and wildlife. Experimentation fuels my creativity. I often choose my medium based on the subject of my art. Watercolor, pencil, conventional or unconventional, my hope is to share my love of nature with others, hoping my art will connect them with nature.

Bobcat | Sculpture by Mary Taylor | Artists for Conservation 2019

Mary Taylor US

In an age of extinction, I believe this is a poignant, crucial time. A time to reflect on the basic philosophical questionssurrounding life and death, as well as beauty and harmony, not only of our endangered species, but also of our own fragile selves.

Noticed | Wallhanging by Tammy Taylor | Artists for Conservation 2019

Tammy Taylor CA

My art is an extention of myself; always present is a connection to something I know and love. Art is not just my passion but it is an outlet for me to document visually what I am passionate about. It is very important to me that I am accurate in details so that I can create life like images, but also try to capture something in my subjects that is unexpected. Something that personifies the animal in a way that we can relate to, and that will evoke an emotion or memory.

The Eyes Have It | Wallhanging by Colette Theriault | Artists for Conservation 2019

Colette Theriault CA

My inspiration comes from nature itself, as it represents a canvas in perpetual motion. My passion for drawing and painting animals has been a lifelong obsession as it depicts the great respect I have for all living organisms. By representing animals in their natural environment, it is my hope to inspire others to appreciate and value the beauty that surrounds us all. If I can captivate the viewer and evoke a feeling of empathy and respect towards the subject, only then do I feel I have truly...

Freedom | Wallhanging by Kim Toft | Artists for Conservation 2019

Kim Michelle Toft AU

Welcome to the world of silk and the animated creatures I paint. I love painting on silk, as it is the perfect medium to capture the immense beauty of coastal and underwater habitats. I use my silks to illustrate my environmental children's books. I believe our children are our future and the sooner we can switch them onto the importance of conserving our coral reefs and oceans the better.

Collins Inlet -  Georgian Bay | Wallhanging by Margarethe Vanderpas | Artists for Conservation 2019

Margarethe Vanderpas CA

I draw my inspiration from many sources; the waters and limestone cliffs of the Bruce Peninsula and the shorelines of Lake Superior and Georgian Bay. I am fascinated by the powerful forces that have shaped the landscape and the effects that time and weather have had upon the earths' surface. Water in particular has fascinated me since childhood. I delight in the discovery of rhythmic patterns created by light as it passes through water, by the ripples on its surface and how it transforms and...

Matriarch | Wallhanging by Lyn Vik | Artists for Conservation 2019

Lyn Vik CA

Born and raised in Alberta, I have developed a great love of the outdoors and the diverse and beautiful wildlife of Western Canada. This appreciation has manifested itself into my art. Much of my professional and personal interests have allowed me to study animals either in the wild or in controlled environments.  Often with my animal subjects, one element of that animal will inspire me more than the whole subject. I call this collection of artwork “Bits and Pieces”. I typically work on only...
