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.
Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Cole Stirling’s passion for wildlife started at an early age. Cole’s earliest memories include early morning drives in his beloved Hwange National Park. Art came as a by-product and a way to express his passion. Studying photography at university, later completing Field and Trails guide qualifications gave him an even greater appreciation for the natural world and a want to conserve it through his work. Stirling has always been drawn to monochrome imagery, especially the simplicity of focus on tone and form, a feature he strives for in his works. It’s also quite handy, as Cole is colour-blind!
