Artists for Conservation

Several years ago in a remote dusty village in Zambia I was sitting on a log drawing the village and its surroundings when a shy young girl sat next to me intent on seeing what I was doing. Within minutes she was joined by 20 or so others all scrambling to get a better view. It was then that I realized not only were these children mesmerized by my materials but also by the emerging animals I was drawing. I handed out pieces of charcoal and paper from my sketchpad indicating they could have a try.

Conquering Heroes

Artists for Conservation

This is not my story. I sat on the sidelines and watched. This is the story of two very brave men who risked everything to prove that art could affect conservation. I am proud to count Jeffrey Whiting and Stephen Quinn of Artists for Conservation as my friends and colleagues.
