I’ve always wanted to have a part of my art practice dedicated to working on conservation based artwork. I have also wanted to participate in an artist in residence, however find it hard to commit to time away from the studio and daily responsibilities. So I decided to create my own opportunities and to reach out to wild animal conservation groups to see if they’d be open to sharing their specific insight, conservation based statistics, and areas of particular concern with me, so that I may then incorporate these themes into a body of artwork.
My goal with this part of my practice is to work on it as the inspiration comes and ultimately to wrap up the project with a selection of images or prints that could become fund raising or awareness raising images that benefit the organization in some way.
