David Shepherd CBE FRSA 1931 – 2017
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.
In the years following, David enjoyed successful one-man shows around the world and won many awards. He was the subject of several TV programmes and published five books and over 200 limited edition prints.
For over 50 years David dedicated his life to protecting some of the world’s most iconic and endangered animals. The foundation lives on in his memory.
