Sweet Things | Wallhanging by Natalie Parker | Artists for Conservation 2022

Natalie Parker AU

Through my art I hope to encourage a greater appreciation and awareness of how unique Australia's wildlife is. I believe that we all have a responsibility to take care and protect our fauna and flora.  We have such a diverse array of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and insects.  Some dangerous, and some are tiny and seemingly insignificant,  but all are just as important as each other. Through my artwork I feel that I can help highlight how important it is to preserve wildlife we have left.

Intensity | Wallhanging by Anne Peyton | Artists for Conservation 2022

Anne Peyton US

Observing birds and their habits is a way to discover more about their nature – the motions a Sandhill Crane makes during preening, the way a Golden Eagle walks along the ground. Each of these actions means something for the bird and it is these behaviors and their meanings that I want to convey to the viewer.

Home Sweet Home - Blackbird's Nest | Wallhanging by Laurie Riley | Artists for Conservation 2022

Laurie Riley US

In the wild, animals are elusive, and often seen only briefly. To bring a true appreciation of their personalities to the viewer, I feel that every pose and expression must be real, without added sentimentality or idealism. I strive to give the viewer an awareness that every creature is sentient, to inspire the viewer to support the preservation of wildlife and habitat and the right of every wild-born animal to roam free.  Viewers, many of whom may not have the opportunity to see these animals...

Native in a an exotic landscape | Wallhanging by William Ritchie | Artists for Conservation 2022

William Ritchie AU

In all my works I aim for a sense of realism and expression that captures the subject matter as it was when I experienced it. I try to replicate the feeling imparted through the experience as it appealed to me, whether that be simplistic or complex. I find Nature has so much to offer and unfortunately, more often than not, these offerings go unacknowledged, taken for granted, or are simply not understood. I feel that through traditional tonal realism painting and realist art, there is...

Bumbling within Uncertainty | Wallhanging by Ashley Roll | Artists for Conservation 2022

Ashley Roll CA

When I created the piece “Survivor” something inside of me clicked. I knew I had found what I was supposed to be creating.  That first piece has lead me down a new path in my artistic journey.  Nature inspiring the artist. The artist creating art. The art funding conservation. What a beautiful cycle to be a part of. I am so pleased to be a part of AFC, to use Art to help fuel conservation.

Lynx Lookout | Sculpture by Rosetta | Artists for Conservation 2022

- Rosetta US

My style has been described as hard-edged yet soft, sensitive yet powerful. I think this is possible because of the position I have chosen along the scale between abstraction and realism. The essense and spirit of the aninmal is captured in the forms, but it is the abstraction of those forms which creates the art.
