Adagio in G Minor | Wallhanging by Sandi Lear | Artists for Conservation 2018
Aviatrice | Wallhanging by Sandi Lear | Artists for Conservation 2018

Sandi Lear AU

Using allegory to draw a corollary between the subject and the human condition, often depicting endangered species and the ocean, I strive to capture the essence of the subject with exquisite focus, leaving the remainder in semi-abstracted form.  The subject must be soulful, I work spontaneously, provoking an emotion, a connection with the viewer without necessarily telling the whole story -  the viewer is invited to explore their memory or emotional connection to the work. The process of...

Keeping Watch | Wallhanging by Laura Levitsky | Artists for Conservation 2018
Sleeping Beauty | Wallhanging by Laura Levitsky | Artists for Conservation 2018

Laura Levitsky CA

Art is where I go to explore and express.  I get lost in it.  It is the only thing I seem to have an infinite patience for as I can sit for hours and meticulously paint every hair of lichen growing on a tree. For me, it is important to include the smallest of pixie-up lichen or the damselfly resting on a blade of grass as I feel it assists in capturing the whole story and hopefully exposes it to the viewer as an important part of the whole picture, not just in the painting, but in nature itself...

Pelican Profile | Wallhanging by Patsy Lindamood | Artists for Conservation 2018

Patsy Lindamood US

Most of my pieces are representational, rendered in exhaustive detail. A self-taught artist, marked by strong, colorful, yet infinitely detailed compositions. In addition to the wildlife pieces based on my own research photography, I have also completed a number of pet and human portraits. I hike nature preserves and national parks to observe, study the behavior of, and photographically record wildlife in their natural environments, then develop my paintings in the studio from my photos....

Harro Maass DE

WILDLIFE ART November/December 1999: "We thought we had struck gold when a package of Harro Maass' transparancies arrived from Germany ..... He paints a wonderful variety of animal subjects - some in their natural habitats, some portrait style and other illustration-like. With such versatility, we believe you will see his name again."

Desert Hunter | Wallhanging by Patricia Mansell | Artists for Conservation 2018

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...

Development | Wallhanging by Chris Maynard | Artists for Conservation 2018

Chris Maynard US

I carve feathers into intricate art. I strive to foster appreciation and understanding of the natural world. I do this by presenting feathers and themes associated with feathers in new ways. Feathers hold important meanings for all ages and cultures. I think this is because birds fly and we cannot; so we dream. In this way, feathers become symbols associated with hope, transformation and escape from our circumstances.   Feathers appear delicate but are not. They are made of the toughest of...

First Responders | Wallhanging by Michelle McCune | Artists for Conservation 2018

I feel blessed to be able to use paint to share magical moments of time I have experienced. I strive for my images to inspire the viewer to become part of conservation movements saving these wonderful animals and the beautiful world in which we all coexist. I chose the studio name of Vanishing Visions to showcase the moments of time captured in each image that were gone in the next instant and to remind everyone that if we do not make a change in our development of land and utilization of...

Kagu Foraging | Wallhanging by Candy McManiman | Artists for Conservation 2018

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...

Newfoundland Surfing | Wallhanging by Kelly McNeil | Artists for Conservation 2018
Still Waters | Wallhanging by Kelly McNeil | Artists for Conservation 2018

Kelly McNeil CA

I believe that when an artist paints, we don’t paint what we see in front of us, we paint our feelings, which are created by what we are seeing. I like to capture the life, the vitality and the warmth of my subjects, whether it’s a wolf sunning in the forest light, or a swan back-lit on lake casting abstract reflection for me to paint. I really feel that I have succeeded when someone looks at one of my paintings and can’t help but smile.

Pond Shadows | Wallhanging by Ken Nash | Artists for Conservation 2018

Eclipse  | Sculpture by Chris Navarro | Artists for Conservation 2018

Chris Navarro US

Having been blessed with a great passion, I really love what I do and hope others see that through the works I have created. In 31 years of being a professional artist, I have found the secret to being an artist is you have to make art and lots of it. You need to put time in the studio with the materials in your hands. It is about commitment, day by day year after year. The great thing about working with bronze it is such a strong, durable, and permanent medium. In the end it is not about how...

Roller | Wallhanging by Calvin Nicholls | Artists for Conservation 2018

Calvin Nicholls CA

The illusion of depth, texture and form is created by the interaction of light and shadow on my monochromatic paper sculptures. My interests in art, wildlife and photography have united as I create these archival pieces and attempt to capture their inherent subtlties on large format colour transparency film. I work from my home/studio north of Toronto in Lindsay Ontario Canada

Sunrise Fishing - Sanibel | Wallhanging by Mary Louise O'Sullivan | Artists for Conservation 2018

Mary Louise O'Sullivan US

I think one of the first hard choices we have to make when we start our painting lives is to decide what to paint. I went from people to cities to trees - loved to do it all. But something finally comes to you and becomes more and more of a challenge, and that attraction for me was to paint the patterns and color nuances of water. And with that in mind there are a thousand more ways of doing it so one doesn't have to get bored. I've painted barnacles, lilies, old rowboats, foxes drinking, birds...

“The Opportunists” | Wallhanging by Anne Peyton | Artists for Conservation 2018
“Picking Flowers” | Wallhanging by Anne Peyton | Artists for Conservation 2018

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.

The Hunters | Sculpture by Rosetta | Artists for Conservation 2018

- 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.

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.
