Gemma Gylling US

From the time I was a little girl I always wanted to create art. My art is inspired by my love and passion of wildlife and animals. The Animals speak to me in a very special way and because of that I try to help them speak to you through my art. I strive to portray the velvet touch of their fur, the sound of their roar or the plight they are living to simply exist. My animal art is created by applying several layers of colored pencil on suede mat board or a sanded surface. Each creation can...

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...

My interests in art, wildlife and photography have united as I create these archival pieces and attempt to capture their inherent subtlties on large format colour transparency film. I work from my home/studio north of Toronto in Lindsay Ontario Canada

Sharon K. Schafer US

I am in love with the wildlands of Southern Nevada. Austere, enchanting, secretive … a land of mysteries, a keeper of secrets, a land of great contradictions and contrasts … a land of much beauty and little rain … a place as magic as dream and as mysterious as heartbeat.

Charlotte Williams GB

The world is in crisis and there are so many causes that need funding, but for me, the looming threat of mass extinction and the ever increasing loss of bio diversity is terrifying. The long-term implications out-stripping all other concerns. It is up to ALL of us to play our part in restoring this fractured planet.  I have pledged to use the best of me, as an artist, to help wherever possible to fund the boots on the ground. A percentage of every piece of work that I do, will be donated to...

Guy Combes US

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...

Michael Dumas CA

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.

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.
