Animals in Paint, Pencil, Pen, Pastel
Esther Lions roar in the night, the scent of Africa wafts through the tent…The ground reverberates with the running of rhinos spooked by a footfall of man…A leopard noses downward to meet her reflection in a quiet pool…Filtered sunlight plays on a gorilla gently cradling her baby. Fantasy? Reality…for Esther Lidstrom.

Her life is colorful. This artist has driven race cars, rappelled down rock-face and frequently tracks elephants, leopards and other exotic creatures. This avid explorer of the African bush succeeds in capturing the spirit of her subjects in lectures, writing, photography and art. Her musical slide presentations have been featured by the National Audubon Society and others. Her art has been exhibited at major museums throughout the United States including the Boston Museum of Science, Cleveland Museum of Natural History and National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, DC. It is also part of the decor at the famed Mount Kenya Safari Club in Africa. Esther, an elected member of the prestigious Society of Animal Artists, was honored with the Society's coveted Award of Excellence for her painting "Elephant Charge" and is listed in Who's Who in the East. Her work, sold internationally, has been utilized for conservation fundraising in the United States, Kenya, and the Republic of South Africa.

Focusing predominantly, though not exclusively, on African wildlife, Esther is a versatile artist whose skills range from the finest technical linework of scratchboard drawing, to the broader strokes of pastel and loose washes of water media. In her unconstrained washes, animals appear and disappear, much as they do in the wild. Areas of detail contrast with indefinite forms. "This", says the artist "symbolizes the precariousness of their existence in today's world."

Love of nature, sensitivity and artistic skill have enabled her to capture the spirit of the natural world and share it with others. Some of her works are available as full-color prints on acid-free paper from Wildlife Impressions.
