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.
Clare Parkes is a wildlife and pet portrait artist based in Hertfordshire, England, working predominantly in pastel pencils. Clare discovered drawing in 2018 whilst on maternity leave and it has become a huge passion. She has been working for the last 14 years as a wax figure painter at Madame Tussauds, and it is here that she discovered a love of detail and realism. She loves capturing the emotion and personality of each animal in her drawings, bringing the viewer up close and personal with the subject, offering them a chance to observe the little details and characteristics that make each face unique.
