Greenland Glacier | Wallhanging by Linda Dawn Lang | Artists for Conservation 2022

Linda Mackey Lang CA

Little did I know that twenty years ago, when I travelled to the Arctic for a once in a lifetime expedition to see icebergs in person, that the experience would change my life. Over 16 expeditions to the polar regions, I have experienced first hand the struggle of polar bears search for food, seen glaciers drastically recede and melt and even witnessed the landscape change colours from icy blues and browns to greens in as little as 3 years before my eyes. My Inuit friends and scientists have...

Cinnamon Wings | Wallhanging by Patricia Mansell | Artists for Conservation 2022

Patricia Mansell CA

I never made a conscious decision to be an animal artist, but every time I sat down to start a new painting I was always drawn to portray animals – I think they chose me, not the over way around. My journey through painting is a constant learning process, adding to and building my knowledge by exploring new techniques. I try to raise the bar on each new painting but want the focus to be on the character of the animal rather than just anatomical details. One of the strengths of wildlife art is...

Sealed With a Kiss | Wallhanging by Michelle McCune | Artists for Conservation 2022

Golden Pheasant & gold | Wallhanging by Candy McManiman | Artists for Conservation 2022

Candy McManiman CA

Often when I am traveling and birding, you do not have time for sketching but my camera is always with me. This shot captures a jaguar just before the sun set. She was stalking the Cuiaba River near Porto Jofre at the end of Transpantaneira Highway, Brazil. In recent years it has become a place where you might expect to see a Jaguar. Travelling down the Highway which is a dirt road with over 75 rickety bridges is part of the adventure to get to the river. The Pantanal is a marvelouse place also...

Days of the Dead | Wallhanging by Denise Monaghan | Artists for Conservation 2022

Denise Monaghan US

      I am interested in the idea of what it means to be a witness in these tumultuous times.  The natural world is under attack and is retreating.  I want to record and describe what I love before it goes away, so as to remember the beauty that has been lost.

Waking up on the Wrong Side of the Bed | Wallhanging by Terri Neal | Artists for Conservation 2022

Terri Neal US

My inspiration comes from our natural world. I love to draw my subjects realistically, exploring each animal anatomically and trying to capture their essence with layers of color and value. This process feels meditative as I immerse myself in each subject and try to find their personality and individuality. I am fascinated by my subject’s behavior and their adaptations to their environment. I use my drawings to share the beauty of our natural world to promote conservation. My current project is...

Giant Panda | Wallhanging by Calvin Nicholls | Artists for Conservation 2022

Calvin Nicholls CA

The illusion of depth, texture and form is created by the interaction of light and shadow on my low relief paper sculptures. A variety of blades and metal tools allow me to cut, emboss and transform the world's finest papers into the feathers and fur of my favourite wildlife species. The delicate characteristics of paper communicate the vulnerability that so many of those very species endure in our changing world. I work from my home/studio north of Toronto in Lindsay, Ontario Canada
