Sedona Fine Artist and Naturalist Sandra Passmore Byland has been accepted into the international Artists for Conservation organization (www.artistsforconservation.org). AFC is the world’s leading artist group supporting the environment, representing artists from over 30 countries. “It was an incredible honor to be accepted into this amazing organization. The artists represented here are part of a global artistic movement to help preserve and sustain our natural world. This is the focus of my own life’s work, and I am so proud to be a part of it. It is profoundly important to me through my art to help create a deeper appreciation, compassion and understanding of the natural world around us so that we become better stewards of the planet.” Sandra commented.
The Artist’s for Conservation mission is “…to support wildlife and habitat conservation and environmental education through art that celebrates nature.” They have gathered amongst their membership some of the finest wildlife and environmental artists in the world. This dynamic group reaches out globally through festivals, exhibits, collaborative art projects, art-science expeditions, awards, publications, films, and leading online initiatives, to engage, inspire and inform the public, and empower passionate professional artists as effective ambassadors for the environment. This is in perfect alignment with Sandra Byland’s passion and purpose for her art.
Sandra’s primary mediums are gouache, watercolor and colored pencil. The start of 2022 finds the artist working on a new series of wildlife to help conserve endangered and threatened species of the southwest. This includes the Mexican Gray Wolf, the American Mustang horses and the California Condor, along with several native species of birds and flowers.
Sandra’s original works are represented here in Sedona by Mountain Trails Gallery in Tlaquepaque. www.mountaintrailssedona.com
