Superb Harvest | Wallhanging by Stephen Jesic | Artists for Conservation 2021

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.

Mishaya | Wallhanging by Mary Jane Jessen | Artists for Conservation 2021

Mary Jane Jessen CA

Humankind is notorious for encroaching on natural waterways and abusing resources. In British Columbia, salmon streams are becoming endangered as human populations grow, and the reality of global warming sets in. Human arrogance leads many to believe they have the knowledge and ability to control nature, in turn leading them to exploit natural life-support systems in order to attain a profit and a degree of personal comfort. Contemporary society’s competitive tensions and materialistic...

Charly | Wallhanging by Sandra Jones | Artists for Conservation 2021

Sandra Jones GB

I try to capture the look, character, feel, texture of an animal and then put all that into an atmosphere that hopefully makes people stop and look closer. Being an Artist I feel I am so fortunate to be able to see the beauty in the world around me in more colour and detail. Unfortunately, this is also true sometimes in seeing the negative impact we are making so I am grateful to be able to share and express through colour, shape and form how I see the splendour in my surroundings.

Familiar with the Sounds before they are Gone  | Wallhanging by Justin Kellner | Artists for Conservation 2021

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...

Sun Salute | Wallhanging by Megan Kissinger | Artists for Conservation 2021

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.

And the Cranes Flew Under the Moon | Wallhanging by Kathy Kleinsteiber | Artists for Conservation 2021

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.

Snowy Owl | Wallhanging by Joseph Koensgen | Artists for Conservation 2021

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.

Not So Black and White | Wallhanging by Jennifer Krueger | Artists for Conservation 2021

Jennifer Krueger US

According to the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, approximately one million species of plants and animals are now threatened with extinction due to human activity. Our world is dying, and with that death comes the extinction of the animals we admire. Every species has a face. Every animal has a heartbeat, a consciousness, a will to be alive. My work challenges the viewer to look directly into those souls, those beings who are being torn away from...

Gilded Shimmer 2 | Wallhanging by Shawna Lampi-Legaree | Artists for Conservation 2021

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...

Sagebrush Sentinels | Wallhanging by Johanna Lerwick | Artists for Conservation 2021

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."

Quiet Pursuit | Wallhanging by Laura Levitsky | Artists for Conservation 2021

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...

Mutual Curiosity | Wallhanging by Esther Lidstrom | Artists for Conservation 2021

Esther Lidstrom US

Lions roar in the night, the scent of Africa wafts through the tent…The ground reverberates with the running of rhinos spooked by a footfall of man…A leopard noses downward to meet her reflection in a quiet pool…Filtered sunlight plays on a gorilla gently cradling her baby. Fantasy? Reality…for Esther Lidstrom.

Take Flight | Wallhanging by Patsy Lindamood | Artists for Conservation 2021

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....
