Once Common: Short-eared Owl | Wallhanging by Jon Janosik | Artists for Conservation 2022

Jon Janosik US

My aim in painting has always been the most exact transcription possible of my most intimate sensations of birds in nature. I have tried to present my impressions in what is the most congenial and expressive form achievable from me. I have elected to study birds with brush and paint, attempting to force this often-unwilling medium of paint and ground, to record them. I recall two strong feelings since my childhood: a bond between birds and myself and desire for self-expression with my hands....

REGENT'S DELIGHT | Wallhanging by Stephen Jesic | Artists for Conservation 2022

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.

The Other Side | Wallhanging by Peter King | Artists for Conservation 2022

Peter King GB

 I use art as a tool to communicate science to a wider audience. Humans usually rely heavily on visual information to understand a concept, therefore interpreting scientific topics through art encourages the viewer to engage with a subject they may otherwise overlook.

No Mud, No Lotus, 10-Year Flood | Wallhanging by Megan Kissinger | Artists for Conservation 2022

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.

The Got-Aways | Wallhanging by David Kitler | Artists for Conservation 2022

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.'

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.

Gotcha | Sculpture by Christine Knapp | Artists for Conservation 2022

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

Migration | Wallhanging by Joseph Koensgen | Artists for Conservation 2022

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 Search of Safety | Wallhanging by Sandi Lear | Artists for Conservation 2022

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...

Fanning the Flames | Wallhanging by Leticiaà Legat | Artists for Conservation 2022

Leticiaà Legat BR

Each of my original designs is manually cut from a single sheet of paper, using scalpel blades. A lengthy, delicate process called psaligraphy. An active meditation of sorts. And what better subject for meditating on than our wondrous world? My art is a loving ode to nature. With it, I hope to help inspire respect, curiosity, and awe for our planet and all its creatures. And thus, contribute to its conservation.

Powerful Force | Wallhanging by Johanna Lerwick | Artists for Conservation 2022

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."

Morning's Song | Wallhanging by Laura Levitsky | Artists for Conservation 2022

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...

The Resident | Wallhanging by Esther Lidstrom | Artists for Conservation 2022

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.

Tern Touch Down | Wallhanging by Patsy Lindamood | Artists for Conservation 2022

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....
