Art and conservation are synonymous with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF). Founded by wildlife artist, David Shepherd CBE to give something back to the animals that helped establish his name as an artist, the Foundation has raised almost £7million for conservation.

David Shepherd has inspired wildlife artists around the world and this year we are bringing together six guest artists who have been inspired not only by David but by this annual international art prize. Their contrasting styles appeal to a wide range of art lovers and will excite great interest in the art world. This week the David Shepherd Archive Collection also brings together original works by David Shepherd, many from private collections and on public view for the first time. The Wildlife Artist of the Year competition that forms the central focus of this week, provides an amazing opportunity to browse and buy original pieces from established greats to up and coming artists. This magazine gives you a glimpse of what’s on show and who won this year’s coveted title. Lastly, but by no means least, check out the celebrity tigers - original tiger sketches and paintings for sale by auction in support of the Foundation’s TigerTime campaign working to save tigers in the wild.

David Shepherd Archive Collection Threadneedle Space David studied art under professional artist, Robin Goodwin, with early commissions for the RAF taking him to Aden in 1960, and on to Kenya. This trip changed his life. He was asked to paint his first wildlife subject and at the same time he became a conservationist overnight when he witnessed 255 zebra dead around a waterhole poisoned by poachers. Since then David has enjoyed successful one-man shows around the world and has won many awards. He has been the subject of several TV programmes and published five books and over 200 limited edition prints.


Now in his 83rd year, David still lives at a frenetic pace, continuing to donate paintings to wildlife through his Foundation, to pay back “my enormous debt of gratitude to the animals I paint”. This Archive Collection of David’s work has been brought together from private collections as part of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s 30th anniversary celebrations. For more information about David, his work and the Foundation see: www.davidshepherd.org
