Postcard Original – Cynthia House – Australian Emu



Cynthia House is an artist who grew up on a remote sheep and wheat property in rural Australia. Painting primarily in acrylic, a medium that allows her the broadest range of experimentation, she has shaped an artistic course with a conscious decision to never limit her artistic vision and to always paint stories that excite the imagination. Her love of the natural world began as a child, developing into a deep concern for the many at risk and endangered species that inspire her creativity. Cynthia still lives in Queensland, Australia, today.


Each year, the talented artists who take part in DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year are invited to participate in #SketchForWildlife.   

By painting or drawing a small image on a postcard it gives visitors to the online exhibition a chance to own a totally unique piece of work, by a highly sought after collection of artists.   

The postcards have always been extremely popular and we hope you will support this initiative which allows more people to own a unique piece of original art, albeit on a slightly smaller scale. The subject and medium of the postcard was entirely up to the artist, with the subject matter being their own celebration of the natural world.    

100% of the proceeds from this sale will support the charitable work of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and our ground-based conservation partners across Africa and Asia.
