Australian Coastal Wildflowers | Wallhanging by Louise Saunders | Artists for Conservation 2022

Louise Saunders AU

I love to capture glimpses of nature and preserve them on paper. A moment in time. Wildflowers, birds and animals in their habitat or studies of butterflies or sea shells. Through my paintings I hope people can gain a greater realization of the beauty and special qualities of our Australian flora and fauna. To be inspired to ensure its protection so that future generations can benefit from and experience our precious wildlife and unique wild places.

Song of the Canyon II | Wallhanging by Sharon K. Schafer | Artists for Conservation 2022

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.

The Magic of Eye Spy | Wallhanging by Geraldine Simmons | Artists for Conservation 2022

Geraldine Simmons AU

No matter which species I draw, it feels natural to portray sensitivity and innocence as a common denominator, even in the fiercest of animals - something animals do not hide and inspires us to reconnect. With their soulful expressions, I can feel each of them is asking something from me, to connect, to listen. I create my art to heed their call.

Puppy Love | Wallhanging by Karin Snoots | Artists for Conservation 2022

Karin Snoots US

The driving force of my work is to share with the viewer the inherent aesthetic beauty that all living things possess, be it raging surf or a tranquil pond. I want to express my excitement over the incredible things I am so fortunate to encounter. I strive to capture the natural setting by experiencing it first hand. What I find so amazing are interactions with the natural world that I would have otherwise missed, i.e. the company of a little fox or a conversation with a proud raven.

Watersong | Wallhanging by Linda Sorensen | Artists for Conservation 2022

Linda Sorensen CA

"As an artist , I am inspired by nature's many seasons and infinite moods of color,light and form. It is here that paint and canvas come together and renew my soul". Linda Sorensen was one of the most talented and dedicated students I had the pleasure to teach and know in my 20 years of teaching.            Her work is strong and bold, starting with nature and putting her distinctive creative stamp on it. Art begins where nature ends. Linda's art was always clearly "Sorensen" The clear stamp of...

Swallow Dream | Wallhanging by Cindy Sorley-Keichinger | Artists for Conservation 2022

Cindy Sorley-Keichinger CA

In today's busy world, it helps to stop and smell the roses.  Gives a person a chance to recharge their batteries.  The best medicine for this is a walk in Nature, as found in several studies.  I hope that my work of painting landscapes and Wildlife helps with this; and gets people to notice the world around them.  If people are engaged with the world, they help protect the other inhabitants.

Small Things Matter | Wallhanging by Lynn Stephenson | Artists for Conservation 2022
Still Standing | Wallhanging by Lynn Stephenson | Artists for Conservation 2022

Lynn Stephenson US

I am a nature artist working in colored pencil in a texturally rich and highly detailed style. While very realistic, my work has an exaggerated softness meant to reflect the fragility of nature. I prefer subject matter close to home. I work using photos I take as reference once back in my studio. I strongly believe pleasant images can be used to convey powerful messages. Initially I want the aesthetics of my art to draw in and engage the viewer. Questions over what my drawing represents will...

Gentle Giant | Wallhanging by Judy Studwell | Artists for Conservation 2022

Judy Studwell US

Living in the shadow of the Tucson Mountains I am passionate about preserving the Sonoran desert. An African safari in 2013 inspired me to share my amazing experiences photographing the African landscape and wildlife. Experimentation fuels my creativity. I often choose my medium based on the subject of my art. Watercolor, pencil, conventional or unconventional, my hope is to share my love of nature with others, hoping my art will connect them with nature.

ALWAYS ON THE MOVE | Wallhanging by Mark Susinno | Artists for Conservation 2022

Mark Susinno US

I consider myself to be a fanatic fisherman, and one of the aspects of fishing that inspires my artwork is the physical beauty of fish themselves, even those many people consider less attractive. But I also find the underwater environments inhabited by fish every bit as worthy and compelling subjects as any above-water landscape. I am often asked why I choose to paint fish, but to me, the greater wonder is that so few other artists do so.

Almost Ready | Wallhanging by Tammy Taylor | Artists for Conservation 2022

Tammy Taylor CA

My art is an extention of myself; always present is a connection to something I know and love. Art is not just my passion but it is an outlet for me to document visually what I am passionate about. It is very important to me that I am accurate in details so that I can create life like images, but also try to capture something in my subjects that is unexpected. Something that personifies the animal in a way that we can relate to, and that will evoke an emotion or memory.

A Trunk Twister | Wallhanging by Rich Tesner | Artists for Conservation 2022

Rich Tesner US

Explore, Dream, Create, Inspire. As an artist and instructor, I look for inspiration through the exploration of the world around me. I am an avid traveler, photographer, and painter. I enjoy spending hours behind the lens in hopes of capturing one or two images that might reveal themselves as opportunities for a new painting. My painting style ranges between impressionism and photorealism, and is greatly influenced by the subject matter. Each painting has a story and each one is a reflection...

Paradise Found and Lost | Wallhanging by Kim Toft | Artists for Conservation 2022

Kim Michelle Toft AU

Welcome to the world of silk and the animated creatures I paint. I love painting on silk, as it is the perfect medium to capture the immense beauty of coastal and underwater habitats. I use my silks to illustrate my environmental children's books. I believe our children are our future and the sooner we can switch them onto the importance of conserving our coral reefs and oceans the better.
