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.

Elizabeth Cogley
Through her artworks, Elizabeth Cogley would like to raise awareness of the need to protect the environment by respecting and appreciating all living things that live on this earth.
She is a member of Friends of Leadbeater's Possum Inc. and has assisted with supplementary feeding of the Lake Mountain Leadbeaters Possum sub species (in Victoria, Australia) after the fires of February 7th, 2009. Leadbeater's Possums are highly endangered. Proceeds from the sale of prints have assisted in raising funds for Friends of Leadbeater's Possum Inc. The Leadbeater's Possum, which is Victoria's State Faunal Emblem, is an endangered species. She is also a part of the Adopt a Nest Box program.
Over the years, Elizabeth has contributed to helping with the care of injured and orphaned wildlife by donating some of her time and some of the proceeds from her artwork. 

From the furthermost points of Cape York, Queensland to Wilsons Promontory in Victoria, from Steep Point, Western Australia to Byron Bay on the mainland and then Tasmania, from our deserts to our tropical areas, our ecosystems are so varied and amazingly beautiful. Elizabeth's aim is to explore each region and gather plenty of reference material and knowledge of each area’s history and it’s flora and fauna, and also take every opportunity she can to protect our ecosystems.

It is very important to her that the environment in which she paints any animal or bird, is well researched. Therefore, after many hundreds of photos, quick sketches and notes, she will have enough information to begin a piece of artwork.

Depending on the environment and the subject, a choice of airbrushing, pastel or acrylic paint, or a combination of these is used. Watercolour, pencil and gouache are used for the animals or birds. Sometimes Elizabeth will use texture to highlight the beauty of a rock, bark, moss or even the earth. Mixed medium is her choice of media but she also uses oil paint when she feels it is appropriate.

Many of the creatures in her paintings are of Australian wildlife that have been rescued or orphaned. Others became the subject of paintings simply because they were an inspiration.
