Australian wildlife artist Geraldine Simmons has a deep respect and passion for animals and the natural world.
The true wonder, beauty, majesty, and strength of her animal subjects inspire her to draw in mixed media, and now scratchboard. Scratchboard enables her to capture the realism and essence of her animal subjects even more.
With each drawing she aspires to convey that the world’s animals are not just mere commodities; to be exploited, used or forgotten.
Geraldine is a signature member of the Artists For Conservation as well as an exhibiting member of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists, Queensland
Wildlife Artist Society Inc, and WABA.
Throughout her career Geraldine has received invitations to both exhibit and donate works to well-known wildlife conservation and animal protection
Geraldine founded the Riding for Rangas charity bike ride in 2009 that raises funds and awareness for non-profit organization Friends of the National Parks Foundation based in Indonesia. The ride is now a biennial event.
