Mixed Media Animal Drawings and Paintings

Beautiful animal drawings and paintings, that were created in the hope that people, would pay more attention to what is happening to them.
New Zealand born, Sydney based Artist Jaimee Paul, sees her talent as an artist, as a way of reaching large audiences, to make a case for animals around the world that are really suffering, some related to the decisions humans make.  I have added, under each picture, facts and figures, taken from Paul's website, which go to explaining why she chose to feature that creature with her mixed media art.  We can end this portion of the post with a wish for the artist: "I hope to create Art For Purpose leading to positive changes in today’s global climate."
