In Respect of the Koala

Michelle Caitens

Life Member Artist

Growing up in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast, Michelle's childhood was surrounded by animals, both wild and tame. She was fascinated by a neighbouring dairy farmer who looked after abandoned or injured sugar gliders and feathertail gliders, returning them to the bush whenever possible.

Since then, Michelle has travelled extensively through Europe, North America and Australia which has greatly influenced her appreciation of the natural world and our unique Australian wildlife.

Michelle is a teacher, has illustrated music books, painted numerous murals in private homes and in schools as Artist-in-Residence, and has worked as a dance teacher and calligrapher. She also enjoys the connection with people and their animals by painting portraits.

Michelle supports a number of conservation organisations including the World Wildlife Fund, Save the Bilby Fund, Wildlife Warriors, the Wildlife Preservation Society and the RSPCA. With her art, she hopes to connect with the viewer emotively, touching a memory or perhaps providing a glimpse into the beauty of wildlife and the natural world.

"If, in some way, wildlife art can help create awareness of the amazing world we live in, then we have achieved some success."

Daisy Claridge

Exhibiting Artist

With a background in drawing, Daisy Claridge is renowned for her pen and ink work of animals and birds which she depicts with exceptionally fine detail. Her passion for wildlife and love of realism combine perfectly to bring awareness and enjoyment of the natural world into people's homes.

Daisy has been successfully exhibiting since 2006 and her range of Australian fauna images are popular sellers in tourist venues. More recently Daisy has been working with colour using a variety of different mediums and techniques. This has brought a different depth and range of subjects to her wildlife studies.

A resident of the Southern Highlands of NSW, Daisy's artworks are available at many local outlets as signed, limited edition giclée prints. They are available in a variety of sizes on archival paper or canvas. Enquiries and purchases can also be made by email or through her website.
