Afternoon Rendezvous | Wallhanging by Stephen Jesic | Artists for Conservation 2020

Stephen Jesic AU

His extraordinary acrylic painting technique and recent depictions of parrots and macaws has drawn the attention of the Australian fine art materials company Matisse Derivan, the producer of the acrylic paints that Stephen exclusively uses. They now feature his techniques on their bi-monthly internet newsletter and are using his images of exotic macaws in the packaging of their Primary Colour Set of Structure Formula Acrylics and Mediums, soon to be released in the United States.

Jacob's Silkmoth | Wallhanging by Hans Kappel | Artists for Conservation 2020

Hans Kappel DE

Through my work I wish to create appreciation for the preservation of nature and the environment. I would like to try to promote the conservation of our natural resources in times of fascination with virtual worlds which seem strangely alienated from nature and sterile to me. Real nature, however, is disappearing and, as I see it, often in small steps which go unnoticed.

Remember the Sounds | Wallhanging by Justin Kellner | Artists for Conservation 2020

Justin Kellner US

The paintings give an impression of the natural areas I've explored, while informing the viewer about their environmental fragility. Very sensitive to their environments, birds are often a good indicator of the health of a particular ecosystem. In my paintings, I combine aggressive, abstract brushstrokes and textures with realistically rendered birds to create spaces that give the impression of erosion, change and isolation.  While my work is informed by my research of environmental issues, my...

Altamira: The Summer of Not Looking Down | Wallhanging by Megan Kissinger | Artists for Conservation 2020

Megan Kissinger US

Go off the path, see the Orb Weaver Spider catch breakfast in her web. Dig up a handful of muck from the ground and see a hundred creatures in the tiny real estate of your palm. Canoe into a cypress head and hear the pops and echos of a million insects, fish and birds going about their daily work of finding—and being food. When I paint, I try to convey that feeling of Life and the paradox that it is, at once, large and small, fertile and barren, safe and dangerous.

Robin Fledgling | Wallhanging by David Kitler | Artists for Conservation 2020

David Kitler CA

We are often told to 'stop and smell the roses.' As a visual artist, David's work reminds us instead to stop and LOOK at the beauty that surrounds us. 'God is an amazing designer; the closer you look, the more there is to see.'

Please Don't Let This Be All That's Left! | Wallhanging by Kathy Kleinsteiber | Artists for Conservation 2020

Kathy Kleinsteiber US

I love the calm that I find in nature and the excitement of a chance encounter with wildlife. Having spent most of my life among the hustle and bustle of the modern world, I want to create a window into the natural world through my art.

Sealing the Deal | Sculpture by Christine Knapp | Artists for Conservation 2020

Christine Knapp US

Art is an intimate way of communicating a message, feeling or emotion to others. My goal is to spark a fond memory, inspire an idea or enlighten my viewers of the varied subjects I have chosen to portray. Of ultimate interest to me is that special bond that develops between people, animals, and each other. – Christine

Pacific Forest | Wallhanging by Joseph Koensgen | Artists for Conservation 2020

Joseph Koensgen CA

The rich natural world has been my inspiration for as long as I can remember. Whenever I have thought about expressing this passion, it has always been through the pencil and paint brush. From the smallest of song birds to the most colourful and majestic of creatures, they are all so diverse and interesting that I am inspired to learn, and to paint. My art is simply an outward expression of my love for the natural world.

In Plain Sight | Wallhanging by Shawna Lampi-Legaree | Artists for Conservation 2020

Shawna Lampi-Legaree CA

I hope that my art work reflects my love of the beauty of natural world both wild and cultivated.  With so many people disconnected from nature, my small aim is to bring awareness of the amazing birds and flowers that surround our homes and forests. Kids so rarely can go out their door and play in the bush like my kids did when they were growing up in the 80s and 90s.  Parental fear and, often time, the actual physical distance to nature plays a pivotal role in the disconnection our children...

a'feather | Wallhanging by Sandi Lear | Artists for Conservation 2020

Sandi Lear AU

Using allegory to draw a corollary between the subject and the human condition, often depicting endangered species and the ocean, I strive to capture the essence of the subject with exquisite focus, leaving the remainder in semi-abstracted form.  The subject must be soulful, I work spontaneously, provoking an emotion, a connection with the viewer without necessarily telling the whole story -  the viewer is invited to explore their memory or emotional connection to the work. The process of...

Silent Approach | Wallhanging by Johanna Lerwick | Artists for Conservation 2020

Johanna Lerwick US

"My love and passion for wildlife has led to my journey of painting, to me, they go hand in hand. When I create a painting, it is more than paint on a brush, it is bringing an animal or scene to life. With my brushes and hues I capture moments in time, instants and exact feelings. When a wolf is caught in the element of surprise or a deer is caught off guard, these are precise moments I bring to life."

A Grizzly Encounter | Wallhanging by Laura Levitsky | Artists for Conservation 2020

Laura Levitsky CA

Art is where I go to explore and express.  I get lost in it.  It is the only thing I seem to have an infinite patience for as I can sit for hours and meticulously paint every hair of lichen growing on a tree. For me, it is important to include the smallest of pixie-up lichen or the damselfly resting on a blade of grass as I feel it assists in capturing the whole story and hopefully exposes it to the viewer as an important part of the whole picture, not just in the painting, but in nature itself...

Jaguar with a Twist | Wallhanging by Patsy Lindamood | Artists for Conservation 2020

Patsy Lindamood US

Most of my pieces are representational, rendered in exhaustive detail. A self-taught artist, marked by strong, colorful, yet infinitely detailed compositions. In addition to the wildlife pieces based on my own research photography, I have also completed a number of pet and human portraits. I hike nature preserves and national parks to observe, study the behavior of, and photographically record wildlife in their natural environments, then develop my paintings in the studio from my photos....
