Each year, the talented artists who take part in DSWF Wildlife Artist of the Year are invited to participate in #SketchForWildlife.   

By painting or drawing a small image on a postcard it gives visitors to the online exhibition a chance to own a totally unique piece of work, by a highly sought after collection of artists.   

The postcards have always been extremely popular and we hope you will support this initiative which allows more people to own a unique piece of original art, albeit on a slightly smaller scale. The subject and medium of the postcard was entirely up to the artist, with the subject matter being their own celebration of the natural world.    

100% of the proceeds from this sale will support the charitable work of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and our ground-based conservation partners across Africa and Asia.  


Sarah Lake discovered papercutting 10 years ago and quickly found a love for it. She has spent years making and donating artwork to various charities such as The Big Cat Sanctuary in Smarden, helping to raise much-needed funds. Each piece is cut by hand with a scalpel, using 6-9 sheets of paper. These are then glued down to give the artwork its depth. Each piece can take between 7-21 days to make, depending on size and detail. They are made using a photograph usually taken by Sarah.
