Cohabitation | Wallhanging by Sharon Sayegh | Artists for Conservation 2020

Sharon Sayegh US

Populated within the natural environment my paintings are filled with female figures, animals, birds and nature coalescing to emerge and transcend to a spiritual realm through symbolism and allegory. Materials include gold, silver, palladium leaf, carved walnut wood and jewel tone oil colors that pulsate with wonder for the world I have felt since my childhood. Art-making is the wondrous, mysterious, complex, magical process of emergent beauty.

Freedom Flight | Wallhanging by Karin Snoots | Artists for Conservation 2020

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.

"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".

Contested | Wallhanging by Cindy Sorley-Keichinger | Artists for Conservation 2020

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.

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.

Ruffled | Wallhanging by Judy Studwell | Artists for Conservation 2020

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.

Entourage | Wallhanging by Mark Susinno | Artists for Conservation 2020

Mark Susinno US

I consider myself to be a fanatic fisherman, and one of the aspects of fishing that inspires my artwork is the physical beauty of fish themselves, even those many people consider less attractive. But I also find the underwater environments inhabited by fish every bit as worthy and compelling subjects as any above-water landscape. I am often asked why I choose to paint fish, but to me, the greater wonder is that so few other artists do so.

Northern Bobwhite | Sculpture by Mary Taylor | Artists for Conservation 2020

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.

I Hear The Train A Comin' | Wallhanging by Tammy Taylor | Artists for Conservation 2020

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.

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...

The interaction between the natural world and manmade structures is of particular interest to me, often giving rise to metaphors which highlight truth, beauty and the longing for ultimate restoration in the world.

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.
