Remembering Lyn Ellison and Judy Scotchford

The international wildlife art community was hit hard by the news of the loss of two great Australian artists, Lyn Ellison and Judy Scotchford, in under one month. Lyn passed away on 29th April, 2015.

Since Lyn has been a Signature Member of Art for Conservation over 15 years ago, she has contributed greatly to various conservation causes. Most recently Lyn donated "Hand in Hand", a painting of Numbats in the Dryandra Forest of Southern Western Australian. The auctioned painting raised $1200 for Project Numbat.
