Judi Lapsley Miller is a digital artist from Wellington, New Zealand. The natural world is her inspiration and she strive through her art to advocate for our endangered species by exploring themes like the tenacity of life in the face of environmental destruction, what it means to be endangered, and the post-human world. Many of her images are inspired from her experiences with volunteering in wildlife conservation projects, where she has had the extraordinary privilege of working with endangered birds like her beloved kākā parrots. Photography is just the first step in her creative process – she digitally blends and masks layers of photographs, graphics, scanned ephemera and textures, lighting and colour adjustments, and digital brushstrokes to form an image that is more painting than photograph. In her images she exposes her interpretation of the inner world of others – their thoughts and feelings, their hopes and desires – in a form tangible to the human viewer that engenders empathy with other living creatures.
