The seller bought this original at Mandy’s first exhibition in Salisbury in the early 1980s. This was the last remaining original since Mandy’s work was so popular. Forty years on, having given so much pleasure to its owners, a new home is needed for this delicate portrait of this beautiful bird. The Foundation will receive a commission following this sale.

Mandy Shepherd

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation
Mandy is one of DSWF’s Art Ambassadors. She was born in 1960 with her art career beginning in late school life with a mackerel! Her art teacher was so impressed by this unexpected ‘creation’ that it was rushed home to show Mandy’s father. That surprise moment was a milestone and her career path was set. After an unrelenting Foundation year at The Byam Shaw she then completed an honours degree at Brighton, travelling to Africa soon after. Mandy spent two years in Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa working with a leading advertising agency in Harare during independence, with a gallery in Johannesburg and managed to establish her own painting style at the same time. She staged her first sell-out solo show in Zimbabwe in 1980 and then returned to London to set up a studio. In 1995 she visited the Falklands which marked a major turning point in her career. She took on military subjects recording military history and events. Portraiture is also a huge part of her portfolio creating a broad portfolio but wildlife is her first love. Taking safaris and travelling across the globe has allowed her to use her art to keep close to the world of conservation. Mandy lives and works in the UK.
