Our founder, David Shepherd, was one of the world’s most talented and prolific wildlife artists who lived and breathed the ‘Art of Survival.’ He travelled and painted widely, inspiring people through his unique artistic talent capturing some of the world’s most precious and endangered wildlife.
David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is dedicated to cataloguing as many of his original artworks as possible to showcase the global reach of his work. With the exact number of David Shepherd originals unknown, we are turning to owners and collectors to seek them out.
To honour David’s considerable art legacy, we are calling on all owners of David Shepherd original artworks to join the David Shepherd Originals Circle. Our aim is to celebrate David’s work together and build an important catalogue of his work around the world – something that has never happened before.
“We would love to collect stories, anecdotes, and tall tales about my father’s adventures, so that memories of his amazing life of art and wildlife can live on. We hope that people who treasure my father’s original artworks will come forward and join our new owners’ circle, to share their stories and experiences with us. It would also be wonderful to build up a picture of where in the world his prized artworks have ended up.”
However, there are always exceptions to the rules – particularly where original sketches are concerned.
