Daniel Taylor is one of the very few artists in the world who masters High Realist painting in acrylic. Taylor is internationally renowned for his expressive portraits and wildlife art. His paintings are built up in a series of subtle layers, making them breathtakingly realistic and giving the impression of the paintings coming alive. "I painted this serene moment to capture the grace of the cheetah and the warm colours of the African plains. In 18-20 months, this cheetah cub will be ready for its own journey of life, birth and death... The fastest land animal is running it most important race: the one for its own survival. Coexistence is the key to survival for both wildlife and people. " Daniel donates 20% of limited edition prints of this painting to the CCF.

Sherry Helen Mullett
At the High Road Gallery WAAL exhibit that opened yesterday, I received an award from Leadership Worthington with a check in a nominal amount (that I will donate to CCF).I've received other awards for painting, but for me, this was particularly meaningful because it indicates that my work "spoke" to someone. Isn't that what we're after, as artists? I, of course, was painting about the danger to the very existence of cheetahs, nature's works of art, but it's exciting to know that the concept was expanded far beyond, with danger to the cheetah becoming symbolic of other reference points. Silly, maybe, but the confirmation that I communicated something I believe in through my art means so much more than the sale of a painting or any award. I'm blushing!

Namibian artist Susan Mitchinson has achieved worldwide acclaim through her art. She works in various mediums including drawing, gouaches, oil painting, woodcuts, pottery and poetry. She is most well known for her vibrant woodcuts and colourful oil paintings, all which surge with emotion and vitality. Her main themes of people, horses, animals and landscapes capture the moods and impressions of these subjects and are portrayed with vivid expression.
She lives quietly on the edge of the Namib Desert with her daughter, their horses and an assortment of other animals. A passionate conservationist she frequently donates artwork to various wildlife charities and in particular CCF.
Photo: Hand-printed, limited edition woodcut – ‘Cheetah in Movement’ - approximately 80 x 30cm in size.
"I have painted wildlife for over 30 years and been involved with conservation efforts even as a child. It is my ardent hope that efforts like CCF will make a difference. The Cheetah is a powerful yet fragile symbol of freedom and independence. We must find a way to preserve their freedoms as we seek to preserve our own. Africa's population is expected to triple in this century (UN Population Division). We must find a way to set aside the required space now to support a sustainable population of these animals in an ecosystem that thrives. Human survival (whether they will admit it or not) is dependent on that sustainable ecosystem. I hope that my paintings will give these amazing animals a voice and find their way into peoples homes and into their hearts and consciousness. It is my meager contribution but one that I am uniquely suited to provide."
Kathryn is creating a signature CCF painting of a cheetah and will donate 80% of the sales of prints of the painting. (Please note that this painting is not completed and the image pictured is a sample of her work.) Please click here to view several examples of Kathryn's work.
Meet Dumo, by Lucci Liyeung
Lucci, a Medicine student in Hong Kong, was first inspired to create a cheetah character when she visited Namibia to work for wild animal shelters. She met Duma, a cheetah orphan, and the two bonded. Lucci could never forget how those generous cheetahs have shown her the true beauty of love and nature. She wanted to do a little something for them. With conservation of cheetahs in mind, Dumo was born under Lucci's pen(cil) in due course, embracing the mission of prospering his fellows' continuous survival. Lucci has donated her Dumo designs to CCF. View some of the great items we have created for kids on the CheetahShop at CafePress.com.

"Over the years I have wondered how my photography might be used to make a difference in the lives of others."
Recently I volunteered with the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia and saw firsthand the plight of the cheetah as it struggles to survive. It is such a shame that man and nature are at odds. Please join me in my efforts to save the cheetah as well as other endangered species. I have pledged 20% of my proceeds of any cheetah photo sold be donated to the efforts of the Cheetah Conservation Fund. The cheetah and other magnificent endangered species may well be extinct in the wild during our lifetime without our help. Please click on the image or here to visit William's web page.

Jordan began her career 40 years ago, when she opened her own boutique in Waikiki in Hawaii. This fledgling beginning led to three store locations and a small factory, which employed around 15 people. Her unconventional beginning as a clothing designer had its drawbacks, but also its advantages. The most important of these was having no one saying, “You can’t do that” in her life, which led to and encouraged innovative approaches to creating both product and marketing. Jordan soon became known for her artistic approach to producing clothing, which usually involved hand-painting. Read more...

Margaret Wilkie's Jewelry
Margaret's life was changed forever in March 2008 when she discovered CCF after reading a Smithsonian Magazine article about Dr. Marker and her mission to save the cheetah from extinction. In her own words: "I was haunted by the article and wanted to help the CCF in any way I could. I decided on jewelry. I have been making precious metal and gemstone jewelry as a hobby for about four years as a sideline to my nursing career of 30 years. 100% of the profits from the sale of my jewelry goes to help CCF, so you can be proud of yourself for buying to help the cause! May the cheetah population and its future bloom and flourish again. With both the CCF and everyday people like you and me in the cheetah's corner, we will succeed!"

Message from one of Margaret's customers: I wanted to write a special message to you about Margaret Wilkie and her exceptional effort and dedication...Margaret happily collaborated with me for months, combining her artistic talent and kindness into making a necklace that was just right for me (and my budget!). It's perfect, beautiful, and already generating interest! I wear it with a smile knowing that it was created by her personally and will contribute to the CCF. I am proud to know her, and I encourage anyone to buy her jewelry to support the cheetahs!!

"Nature is the best inspiration and is the true standard of beauty." Judith Owen
The award-winning audiobook Cheetah Portal, by Bonnie j Nelson, was written while on safari in Africa in early 2006. It is the soul searching saga of one woman's journey into the raw splendor and heartbreak of Africa's terrain, exotic wildlife and exquisite people. She follows the tracks of the cheetah through a drought plagued country seeking the answer to one question: why has she been brought here? Battling demons and phobias with the spirit of her mother beside her, Bonnie's overwhelming desire to give back to a parched country and passion for the oldest wildcat on earth perilously close to the brink of extinction brings to you a gift. Bonnie supports CCF in many ways, including gifting her book as part of CCF's 2007 Year-End Challenge.

Born in New Zealand, Jan moved to London in the early 90's. She attended Camden Art School ~ print, The Royal College of Art ~ drawing and completed her degree in sculpture at St. Martins College in 1994.
Jan's work is inspired by the hot landscapes of Africa. She paints the movement and the form created by the animals, be it individual big cats or herds of zebra racing through the wilderness. Her last two exhibitions in London and New York were complete sell out shows. She creates texture on the canvas by allowing the paint to dry quickly with a layer of varnish to cause a crackle glaze finish. Using this technique and layers of gold leaf, Jan manages to convey the warmth and dryness of the bush.
Please visit Jan's web site at http://www.jancoutts.com/ to view some of her work. Tell her that CCF referred you!
