Priscilla Baldwin

AFC Festival Ambassador
“The mission statement of the Art Institute I founded 20 years ago at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and that of Artists for Conservation, are virtually identical. “Conservation through Art Education” and “Conservation: the Gift of Life” are equally applicable to both organizations."
 
Born in South Africa and having lived for an extended time in Texas, Hawaii, Colorado and Arizona, Priscilla has experienced a variety of botanical and natural science environments. She holds a BA from Sweetbriar College.
 
Her varied interests have included scuba diving, competitive trapshooting, gardening, architectural design and botanical and natural sciences art.
 
Pursuit of excellence has been a common goal through each endeavor. A six-time All-American Trapshooter and Master Gardener, Priscilla's work has been the subject of a number of publications, including feature articles in Colorado Homes and Lifestyles and House and Garden magazines.
 
Priscilla has served on the Board of Trustees of the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, and was the founder of the Garage Class Series in Evergreen, Colorado.
Priscilla is the founder of the highly successful Art Institute at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, whose mottos are "Conservation through Art Education" and "Conservation - the Gift of Life." Students are encouraged to see and appreciate the natural world and create works of art and, by this process, to become conservationists. The student body now numbers more than 1,200 and is still growing by 20% annually.
 
Priscilla's art work is in many private and corporate collections as well as the permanent collections of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation and the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
 
Currently, she creates artwork for the benefit of the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, the Saguaro National Park and other conservation organizations.
