Viewing art as a means of social and environmental consciousness, Simone Guimaraes explores the world of endangered species, humanitarian and environment causes.
Her mixed media technique is a fusion between technology and craft. In a world of high-tech and “low-touch” society, she conveys the importance human touch still holds in a technological driven culture. Simone uses computer based tools to overlay original drawings, mixing digital with non-digital as she brings it back to the “touch” of paper and of human interference. An interruption to the digital process and a reminder that we have to “physically” do more to coexist with the environment, wildlife and each other.
Ten per cent from sales of Simone’s artwork is donated to organizations around the world in support of wildlife, humanitarian and environmental causes. Since 2016, the following organizations have been recipients of this initiative: Oceana, UNHCR, WWF, Friends of the Earth (FOE), Rhinos Without Borders, Survival International, Polar Bears International, Australian Koala Foundation and The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International.
