ARTWORK DESCRIPTION: When we see a baby animal or species like an adorable koala, the insinct of mankind is immediately captivated by its sweetness and vulnerability. This is what Geraldine Simmons aspired to highlight in her sensitive drawing ‘Avalon Was Home’. Geraldine feels that vulnerability is something that every sentient being is born with and it provokes our instinct to protect them.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: Artists For Conservation signature member Geraldine Simmons lives and works from her home studio at Collaroy in Sydney, Australia. During her travels to the deep jungles of Borneo, the eyes of the orangutans and exquisite beauty of Indonesian wildlife captivated her. That life-changing experience in 2005 inspired Geraldine to raise funds and awareness for endangered wildlife. Spanning over thirty-three years, Geraldine has exhibited both nationally and internationally. Her notable exhibitions include the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, the virtual Artists for Conservation Annual Exhibit and Festival Canada, Sketch for Survival Art Auction London, and ENDANGERED Art4Apes Florida.
