David Shepherd

David Shepherd is regarded by many as being one of the world’s leading wildlife artists but also, because of the enormous debt that he says he owes wildlife for what it has done for him, he is known internationally as a leading conservationist. His paintings have raised over one million pounds for this cause. David Shepherd has been awarded The Order of the Golden Ark by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands as well as the Order of the British Empire for his services to conservation. He has been made a Member of Honour of the World Wildlife Fund and has also been awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts by the Pratt Institute in New York.
