The wildfowl sculptures I create is to showcase the beauty I see in nature. In doing so I hope other will stop and take notice of nature even if they are in their back yard. It sad to see the decrease in song birds and bees around my little part of the world. Enjoy what we have and please help with conservation.

“My passion for nature’s beauty, chaos and wonder has lead me to create images that bring to life the spirit of what I see in quiet places, and try to make you feel the awe and the Essence of its Beauty. Life is a miracle – enjoy it, experience it and share it!”
More about Cher Anderson
My goal as an artist is to interpret an organism with love, respect, and fidelity to essence. As a naturalist and wildlife biologist, I want my work to inspire and motivate people to fully appreciate the natural world and work to protect it. Marvel at the beauty of an animal well portrayed, and you can for a moment escape the confusion of modern society and connect with something much bigger and grander.

Earth, water and atmosphere inform my artistic practise. What I experience in the outdoors is translated into paintings which illuminate these landscapes and seascapes; oil paintings created to share the beauty as well as the juxtaposition of calm and chaos that defines our natural world. Colour, composition and light are integral to the development of my work, giving it a multi-dimensional, illuminated quality. I find mankind's quest for progress in conflict with the preservation of our rural...

Dreaming of outdoor adventure and wildlife, I escaped my urban childhood by creating art. Mother Nature and her endless pallet has always been my source of inspiration. Early lessons at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and later the Cleveland Institute of Art, I developed an ability through the stroke of a pen or a sweep of a brush to capture nature’s voice. What I hope to offer one’s eye is a nuance and relationship that pervades one’s spirit, those subtle and elusive moments of peace,...

One of the best ways we artists have of giving back to the world that inspires us is to donate our artwork and our time. I hope that my paintings have and will continue to raise awareness of the important conservation work we all need to do.

"I am intrigued by the fleeting balance between strength and fragility in nature. Drawing inspiration from the natural environment I bear witness to the beauty, interdependence, and sanctity of all creation. I seek to share this glory with viewers so that they may also pause and reflect, and feel as if they are here, in the moment.”

Suzanne Barrett Justis
The artist Gustave Courbet once said, "the beautiful is in nature and it is encountered under most diverse forms of reality. Once it is found, it belongs to art, or rather to the artist who discovers it." I have always been enraptured by the natural world and strive to recreate what moves and excites me with my art. I have always been captivated by animals and the many " diverse forms of reality" nature holds. As a kid, I was always drawing something, be it the maple tree in the backyard, our...

Forever interested in nature and the influence of mankind on wildlife, it is after completing a BSc in biology with specialisation in Ecology and environment that my mission became more educational. Large mammals as well than all fauna and flora are greatly affected by what is happening to our home. My intention is to bring some of these issues to light and trigger a conversation while depicting beauty and strength.

Unlike so many investments we make, visual art can freeze in time what may otherwise pass us by, and surrounding oneself with art can provide a much needed refuge, a gently pressed break from the rush of life. A glance at a painting of an expansive sunset, a portrait of an innocent child, an animal captured in it's natural habitat or a fascinating abstract can let us connect to our feelings from that moment in time, providing depth, clarity, excitement or perspective. I believe a scene of...

I am using single sheets of black paper and scissors to make complex cut images. To me the material and the production process reflects the delicacy and also the fragility of nature. All things are interconnected and interwoven and have an impact on each other. My work discusses the interactions in nature: the eternal flow of life.

Animals have a right to a place in the world. We as human make up just a small part of the world. Everything is connected and once different species of animals disappear then more and more will follow. Animals do not have a voice, and as an artist I wanted to try and give them a voice through my art. Artists through centuries have been the observers in a society. Art can make a difference, get people thinking, seeing and hopefully changing ways so that animals can keep and improve their...

"I take great pride that art is created from my love affair with wood. The wild forces of nature produce my material. I have learned not to judge a piece of wood by its exterior appearance, for beneath the surface I can take it anywhere I want just by using my imagination. What I try to achieve with my sculptures is to touch the innermost of human emotions. I am most respectful and caring towards our environment."

Exploring and describing the magical wonders of Africa are processes that have absorbed me into a thrilling cycle of challenges, accomplishments and further challenges that continually fortify my confidence to paint. This is a journey that I know will lead me towards many new subjects, but my lifelong African experience is so far still proving that around every corner there is a heart stopping new encounter. In my paintings I always attempt to do more than just open a window on a visual...

The Canadian wilderness has always been a major inspiration for my paintings, drawings and photography. Plein air painting, sketching in watercolour, acrylic or oils I have trekked, camped and rafted throughout Canada. Life drawing is a discipline I have kept through a half century of creating art both illustrative and fine art. I share my love of drawing, painting and sculpting with children and tirelessly support the arts in the City of Kawartha Lakes where my studio sits amidst farms and...

I'm a portrait artist, working to capture the individual and find his or her story. By setting ourselves so far apart from other animals, we lose our connection to them and the rest of the planet in the process.

One of the challenges I enjoy most in the creation of a piece, is trying to convey movement and life in my subjects. Despite the fact that they are made of metal and stone, for me it is essential that the scultpure be "fluid" and moving. If the sculpture compels a person to touch it or turn it or interact in any way then the piece meets my hopes of further engaging the viewer beyond simply visual appreciation. Also, with many of my subjects being involved in pursuit activities, I rely on the...

We are here for the experience of life. Most people get that on some level. It's my belief that this experience is the only thing we leave with. So make and build things, enjoy the planet, get away from your computer screens and get wet, tired and dirty. Express yourself in whatever way makes sense to you and try your best to love everyone.

As a self- taught artist, I prefer oil paint on canvas and for the most part triple zero brushes for working on fine detail. Paintings are meticulously rendered from multiple layers of thinly applied paint, and small strokes pick up the preferred natural light. Wild landscape and highly detailed scenes are my subject of choice and I strive to include the viewer in my visual journey and interpretations of the naturel world and human nature.
