The wildfowl sculptures I create is to showcase the beauty I see in nature. In doing so I hope other will stop and take notice of nature even if they are in their back yard. It sad to see the decrease in song birds and bees around my little part of the world. Enjoy what we have and please help with conservation.

“My passion for nature’s beauty, chaos and wonder has lead me to create images that bring to life the spirit of what I see in quiet places, and try to make you feel the awe and the Essence of its Beauty. Life is a miracle – enjoy it, experience it and share it!”
More about Cher Anderson
My goal as an artist is to interpret an organism with love, respect, and fidelity to essence. As a naturalist and wildlife biologist, I want my work to inspire and motivate people to fully appreciate the natural world and work to protect it. Marvel at the beauty of an animal well portrayed, and you can for a moment escape the confusion of modern society and connect with something much bigger and grander.

One of the best ways we artists have of giving back to the world that inspires us is to donate our artwork and our time. I hope that my paintings have and will continue to raise awareness of the important conservation work we all need to do.

"I am intrigued by the fleeting balance between strength and fragility in nature. Drawing inspiration from the natural environment I bear witness to the beauty, interdependence, and sanctity of all creation. I seek to share this glory with viewers so that they may also pause and reflect, and feel as if they are here, in the moment.”

The artist Gustave Courbet once said, "the beautiful is in nature and it is encountered under most diverse forms of reality. Once it is found, it belongs to art, or rather to the artist who discovers it." I have always been enraptured by the natural world and strive to recreate what moves and excites me with my art. I have always been captivated by animals and the many " diverse forms of reality" nature holds. As a kid, I was always drawing something, be it the maple tree in the backyard, our...

In often compromising times of mass production and "bottom-line" decisions, the world can overwhelm an artist. Carving is where Craig's overwhelm stops. Each work is carved with care from a single piece of wood or stone. His desire is to represent not only the physical likeness of his subject, but also its character, so that the viewer not only recognizes the beauty of the finished artwork, but also feels drawn to the energy and spirit of the creature itself. Ultimately Craig judges his work a...

In all its forms and styles, the great challenge in Japanese painting consists in rendering the essence of the chosen subject, be it an animal, a tree or a flower. The result is a more intimate and subjective form of art.

I am using single sheets of black paper and scissors to make complex cut images. To me the material and the production process reflects the delicacy and also the fragility of nature. All things are interconnected and interwoven and have an impact on each other. My work discusses the interactions in nature: the eternal flow of life.

Animals have a right to a place in the world. We as human make up just a small part of the world. Everything is connected and once different species of animals disappear then more and more will follow. Animals do not have a voice, and as an artist I wanted to try and give them a voice through my art. Artists through centuries have been the observers in a society. Art can make a difference, get people thinking, seeing and hopefully changing ways so that animals can keep and improve their...

My media varies from acrylics and watercolors to oils and intaglio prints. My style varies from realistic to loose and airy impressionism depending on what best portrays the subject and its environment. My inspiration is first-hand observation in the environment, then study specimens, and finally reference photos. My goal is to capture the essence of the animal's movement, habits and cycle of life.

Exploring and describing the magical wonders of Africa are processes that have absorbed me into a thrilling cycle of challenges, accomplishments and further challenges that continually fortify my confidence to paint. This is a journey that I know will lead me towards many new subjects, but my lifelong African experience is so far still proving that around every corner there is a heart stopping new encounter. In my paintings I always attempt to do more than just open a window on a visual...

I'm a portrait artist, working to capture the individual and find his or her story. By setting ourselves so far apart from other animals, we lose our connection to them and the rest of the planet in the process.
More about Carrie Cook
As a self- taught artist, I prefer oil paint on canvas and for the most part triple zero brushes for working on fine detail. Paintings are meticulously rendered from multiple layers of thinly applied paint, and small strokes pick up the preferred natural light. Wild landscape and highly detailed scenes are my subject of choice and I strive to include the viewer in my visual journey and interpretations of the naturel world and human nature.

In the growing world of environmental turmoils and destructions, I believe that bringing back to people's mind the lifting spirits of art makes a difference in making the world better, at least to halt the current destructive trend. Art has a power of educating, soothing and healing. By joining other artists on the same cause, I believe the united force will ignite new trend and energy. I hope to learn from other artists' work on their mission to protect their own local environment, and to...

I believe the human mammal has found it increasingly more difficult to move away from our fast evolving & more technological ‘world’, where the environment is badly damaged in our thirst for knowledge, and is neglected to the point of justification & denial. What I strive to do in my portrayal of Nature, is to bring the onlooker into the subject's world using basic human instincts such as pity, without being sentimental, whilst at the same time illustrating a little of the fascinating...

Leslie's journey has been a fascinating 40-year artistic journey toward conservation of the environment and the preservation of endangered species of the planet. Her art has brought her into dangerous and close encounters with subjects such as boa constrictors, wolves, cheetahs, tigers, and polar bears, which she has used as models for artworks. Every piece of artwork speaks to addressing and bringing awareness to our planets's endangered species. Her mission path has required an unusual...

Through my travels I have always been drawn to isolated places. In the past these were physical geographical parts of the world I have experienced. Now I find myself going inward, areas of spiritual and emotional isolation that I find disturbing and facinating. I find recording the former on board or canvas much easier than the latter, but that adds to the attraction.

Every day it seems, we turn on our media and see pain and strife and ugliness. But that is not the world which we were given. The world we were given is actually extraordinarily ordered and beautiful. My job as an artist is to continually help illuminate that. Every painting I do is defined by that overarching objective. I consider my work to be nothing more than a simple depiction and celebration of the miracles that surround us every day.

The underlying purpose of creating has to do with why certain objects inspire attention in the first place, or how they might be used to express a concept. The greater connection between object and idea, the more insightful the work will be, the more truth it will reveal, and not just about the thing painted but about the artist as well. It is all about thinking and feeling.

I paint animals because wild creatures present themselves simply as they are. Theirs is a raw beauty without artifice, the primordial connection with life clearly visible. In this connection, I encounter my own humanity at a deeper level. My portraits portray animals in a respectful way, aware of their otherness, avoiding any trace of nostalgia or sentimentality. The background is the devoid of details: nothing distract the viewer from the animal and its presence.

As an artist for conservation, I am always delighted and humbled by the stories I find in nature. My goal is to share those stories with a wider audience. When we fall in love with something, we are more likely to take action to protect it. Art, whether creating it or appreciating it, is a powerful way to do that!
