Jacquie Vaux

AFC Conservation Artist of the Month for January, 2021

During her entire career, Colorado artist, Jacquie Vaux has been a dedicated conservationist, donating many of her art works to fund-raising activities which benefit endangered wildlife. The organizations she has supported are include: The Wild Animal Sanctuary (in nearby Keenesburg, Colorado) the National Audubon Society, the World Wildlife Fund and the Nature Conservancy, the Marin county Humane Society, the San Diego Zoo, and the San Francisco Zoo.
Currently Jacquie is supporting the International Hoofed Animal Awareness association (IHAA) and a local (Ft Collins, CO) fund-raising organization, Idea Wild; dedicated to aid many small but beneficial nature and wildlife projects around the globe.

Jacquie Vaux's paintings always demonstrate her deep love of wildlife. "As long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated and inspired by the beauty of nature. This led me to my career of capturing these beautiful scenes and creatures and presenting them to others. I work in several different painting media including acrylic and gouache, but transparent watercolors are my favorite."

Jacquie and her husband have traveled all over the world to obtain the photos she uses for her paintings. Their trip to Africa was a life-changing experience for Ms. Vaux. To the present day, her paintings of African wildlife reflect her first-hand adventures on the dark continent.

Now a full-time resident of Fort Collins, Colorado, she hikes Rocky Mountain National Park regularly, carrying her camera to capture images of the local wildlife.
