“My mission as an artist is to communicate that animals are not just mere commodities. Every species has an essential purpose and a reason for being within this intricate web of life.
When I look into their eyes and study their expression it is as though they are looking back at me as myself. It is this sense of oneness I aspire my viewer to feel as real and touchable.”
Australian artist, Geraldine (Geri) Simmons’ mission is to communicate that animals are part of an intelligent system where we are all connected and that all animals deserve to be safe and thrive in their own habitat.
A signature member of the AFC (Artists For Conservation), Geri won the Conservation Artist Award for artistic excellence and extraordinary dedication to conservation for May 2010.
