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.
Justin Mark has always had a great interest in both wildlife and the visual arts and combining the two has provided him with the utmost satisfaction. Justin gathers his own photo references from local zoos in Ontario and he has also travelled to Zambia for even greater inspiration. He had the opportunity to view lions in the wild, which had been one of his goals and dreams for as long as he can remember. The piece he has chosen to enter represents this most iconic species.
