About the Artist
Lyrae Perry grew up in Big Bear Lake, CA surrounded by a National Forest. Conservation, fire safety, wildlife and ecology are naturally major themes for residents in that community. She recalls being thrilled with the natural world and wildlife of all kinds as a child. She regularly participated in the Forest Service’s conservation poster contests from kindergarten through high school.
While the primary focus of Perry's art started with local California wildlife, it naturally grew to include species from all over the world, including the Hill Country in Texas where she now makes her home. The variety of color, form and function of each insect, bird, animal and plant in an ecosystem is exciting and magical to her. She lets the big things draw her in, and then spend as much time as possible looking for the unusual and tiny details and behaviors that are often missed by the casual glance in nature.
Lyrae says this about her art "For me, nature and wildlife art is more than just a visual form of communication. My intention for the viewer is communion. Capturing a bit of nature through my art is an activity I love…and a spiritual practice. I want my art to inspire others the way it inspires me, and to evoke a feeling of connectedness with all life on this planet."
