Ring-Tailed Lemur by Carrie Cook. All Rights Reserved. It all comes down to capturing the individual. Unless it’s a pet we know personally, animals are usually looked at in the aggregate. And yet surely it is as individuals that they see themselves.
I’m a Signature member of the Society of Animal Artists (less than 350 of us exist in the wild.) I’m also a member of Artists for Conservation.
I’ve always painted (non-human) animals, but perhaps now with a greater sense of urgency. I’m also a member of Artists Against Extinction, and the disregard for species across the globe is alarming. I’m not anti-human (hey, some of my best friends are human!), but attention must be paid.
At least 10% of profits from paintings and prints is donated to charities that fight for animal rights and/or fight the good fight to keep wildlife wild.
