"Nature.  The Natural World.  Everything before man came and covered with concrete and steel.  I am truly alive in the natural world, the jungle, the mountains, the forests, the places where all our millions of different species thrive.  This is the world I strive to live in and use my art to illuminate and share with the many people of the world who revere this natural animal world the way I do.  I create with paint, ink, graphite, sculpture, collage, anything not nailed down, to bring an awareness of the beauty and diversity and conservation issues of Planet Earth’s wildlife.  Doug Hiser Professional World Wildlife Artist, Painted Jungles. "

I volunteer my art and my time with many organizations commited to conservation.  The Houston Audubon Society, speaking at events, showing art and creating awareness of the migratory birds of the Texas Gulf Coast.  We raised funds for the Houston Zoo and the Okapi foundation to preserve these animals in zoos and in Africa.  Highlighting the African Elephant by painting a mural that hangs in the Houston Museum of Science.  My students and I teamed up with the Houston Zoo to create 32 endangered species murals to hang in the Education Center of the Zoo.  I headed Zoofari murals for the summer camp of the Houston Zoo.  Former member of the Armand Bayou Nature Center and I continue to work with art shows and Earth Day demos for youth at the center.  I am a naturalist and wildlife guide, touring internationail wildlife photographers during Featherfest Galveston's large birding migration festival each year.
