Artist Raises Awareness of Wildlife Conservation with Realistic Paintings

For artist Sophie Green, animals are more than creative muses. The UK-based painter captures giraffes, bison, elephants and other creatures in photorealistic portraits that celebrate each subject’s unique beauty and raise awareness of their vulnerability. Additionally, the beautiful, award-winning entertainer donates 10% of her profits to wildlife and conservation charities.

“I am of the opinion that everyone should make a concerted effort to improve the dire situation in which our planet currently finds itself; whether it’s donating time, money, changing one’s lifestyle, or educating others,” Green told My Modern Met. “For me, I use my art to portray both the beauty and vulnerability of the natural world, raise awareness of conservation issues, and encourage others to think about how they too can make a difference.”

Each work presents an animal or a few of its species on an empty background. This puts all the attention on the cause of the species represented. By rendering each animal in spectacular detail, Green encourages viewers to reflect on the beauty of the subject, as well as envision their future on this planet. “To me, there is nothing so fascinating, so precious and so graceful as the natural world. I have drawn, sketched, painted and been obsessed with animals and their environment since childhood and will continue to do so for many years to come,” she adds.

You can purchase original paintings and limited edition prints through Green’s online store and know that a portion of the proceeds go to wildlife conservation. Follow the artist on Instagram to be informed of his latest projects.
