Pacific Heron - Under the Docks | Wallhanging by Candy McManiman | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

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...

Paper Perch Nuthatch | Wallhanging by Calvin Nicholls | Artists for Conservation 2023

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
