The AFC Conservation Artist Award is awarded monthly to honour a member for outstanding artistic talent and extraordinary contribution to the conservation cause. At the end of each year, a prior recipient of the monthly honour is selected for the annual Simon Combes Conservation Award.

The Simon Combes Conservation Award was created by the AFC in February 2005 to honour Combes' memory. Combes, world-renowned painter, author, instructor and dedicated conservationist, was tragically killed by a charging Cape Buffalo while hiking near his home in Kenya on December 12, 2004.  At the time, Combes was the Director of the Kenya chapter of the Rhino Rescue Trust (www.rhinorescue.org), an organization founded in 1985 to protect endangered species from poachers and to help the communities surrounding Lake Nakuru National Park affected by wildlife conflicts.   As this is the first year for the award, the first recipient has yet to be selected.

Stuart Arnett

Stuart Arnett grew up in Gananoque, Ontario, one of the most beautiful areas of Eastern Ontario. It played a significant role in his wildlife and nautical interests. Many of Stuarts paintings are of wildlife overlaying topographical maps. Primarily working in graphite, he enjoys exploring other mediums such as oil, pastels, and watercolours.

 

As a wildlife conservation artist, one of his main goals is to assist in both specie and habitat conservation. This is done through the creation of Strategic Partnerships, similar the one he has with the Philippine Eagle Foundation, and with wildlife organizations and environmental groups that are focused on working to protect our endangered species and their natural habitats. In addition to setting up individual partnerships, as a Signature Member of the Artist for Conservation Foundation since 2002, he donates a percentage of art sales to a specific organization to further assist in their fund raising.

 "My love for wildlife along with a fascination for maps has created a new form of art that I have dubbed "Artistic Cartography". It has become very popular and is currently one of my primary focuses. Artistic Cartography allows me to bring the species of wildlife and its habitat together in a single piece of art. My goal to assist conservation groups in their effort to save endangered species while preserving their habitat."

 One of the conservation organizations Stuart has aligned with is the Raincoast Conservation Foundation. That arose from an absolutely phenomenal sailing cruise on the Raincoast Conservation Foundation's research vessel, the Achiever, in September of 2018. While cruising the Great Bear Rainforest they were able to observe several pods of humpback whales, grizzly bears with their newborn cubs, harbour seals and sea Lions. One pod of humpbacks was bubble net feeding and they we were fortunate enough to be able to watch for a few hours before we moved on. "We would anxiously await the explosion of the whales above the surface to madly take as many photographs as we could. The groupings of hungry seagulls would help us in locating the "net's" centre."  Several art pieces were inspired by that expedition and will be used to help raise funds so that the Raincoast Foundation can continue their unique conservation work.

 Stuart now lives in Ottawa with my wife Tracy, a Real Estate Agent and our two young daughters we enjoy the Rideau River and Canal and spend summers at their cottage on Clear Lake on the Rideau River System enjoying nature at its best.

 He works from his studio in the heart of Ottawa.
