They Called Me Cecil | Wallhanging by Alexandra Saunders | Artists for Conservation 2023
Young Mama | Wallhanging by Alexandra Saunders | Artists for Conservation 2023

Alexandra Saunders US

Wildlife and the world of nature are at the core of my being.  The gift of wonder for the diversity of life was given to me from an early age and it’s my love for animals and nature that inspires me in everything that I do.  Although I've worn many hats in my lifetime, my world revolves around my love for the natural world. My work attempts to capture the innocence of some very special non-human individuals. My pieces are intimate portraits of them;  they, like us, have a reason and a right to...

Leafy Seadragon | Wallhanging by Louise Saunders | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

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 Cost of Convenience | Wallhanging by Geraldine Simmons | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

Sight Unseen | Wallhanging by Karin Snoots | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

Backward Glance | Wallhanging by Elisabeth Sommerville | Artists for Conservation 2023
Tree Hugger | Wallhanging by Elisabeth Sommerville | Artists for Conservation 2023

Elisabeth Sommerville CA

My strength and my joy is my ability to draw, for which I am eternally grateful. My style is meticulous and detailed and I spend weeks happily drawing a single composition. I experiment with placing my subjects, usually birds, in groups where their poses and expressions seem to form a dialogue among them; a narrative that appeals to the viewer in a lighthearted way. My Métis heritage has likely engendered my love of birds and animals as subject matter.

Ruffed Grouse | Wallhanging by Cindy Sorley-Keichinger | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

Inundated | Wallhanging by Lynn Stephenson | Artists for Conservation 2023

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...

Backlit Breakfast | Wallhanging by Carol Stratman | Artists for Conservation 2023

Carol Stratman CA

 IT IS THE INNOCENCE AND PURITY OF WILD ANIMALS THAT IS SO ATTRACTIVE TO ME. I STRIVE WITH EACH WORK TO PORTRAY THEM AS ACCURATELY AS POSSIBLE, MY HOMAGE TO THEIR BEAUTY AND SIMPLICITY. TO ME, THERE IS SOMETHING SO INTRIGUING, AND HUMBLING, IN DRAWING SOMETHING THAT EXISTS THAT DOESN’T KNOW IT EXISTS. ANIMALS SIMPLY ARE. THEY KNOW INSTINCTIVELY WHAT THEY NEED TO DO EVERY DAY TO SURVIVE AS THEY COEXIST IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT IN A FRAGILE AND HARMONIC BALANCE.

Old Goliath | Wallhanging by Judy Studwell | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

Sierra Treasures | Wallhanging by Mark Susinno | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

A Leopard's Gaze | Wallhanging by Tammy Taylor | Artists for Conservation 2023

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.

Wanderer of the Marsh | Wallhanging by Rich Tesner | Artists for Conservation 2023

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...

I want to inspire people to change their approach to nature in a positive way.  I believe that if we have a better understanding of our natural surroundings, we will learn to love it and therefore care for it. Quiero inspirar a la gente a cambiar su actitud hacia la naturaleza en una manera positiva.  Creo que si tenemos un mejor entendimiento sobre nuestro alrededor natural, aprenderíamos a amarlo y como consecuencia cuidarlo.

Pika Boo | Wallhanging by Christine Tunnoch | Artists for Conservation 2023

Christine Tunnoch CA

Have you ever stood still in a forest in early spring and tried to count the various shades of green in front of you? It's overwhelming and fantastic all at the same time. This is what inspires me. Each painting is my attempt to capture the moment when we stand still long enough to focus on one small spot in the blur of life.
