David Shepherd

A number of people who do actually know who I am often say, “you must have had enormous talent to have succeeded in life as an artist”. They find it hard to believe me when I answer by telling them that in fact I had no interest in art, and even less talent.

Growing up in the 1930’s, I had just one ambition; to be a game warden in Africa however the Kenya National Parks did not welcome me as a candidate and I returned to England faced with two choices. One was to drive a bus and earn a reasonable living. The other was to pursue my extraordinary lack of talent and somehow struggle to be an artist. The Slade School of Fine Art took one look at my work and told me to go away and drive a bus! 

In 1952, it was purely by chance that I went to a party at which I met a professional artist, Robin Goodwin who took me under his wing and after three years, I started my artistic career painting my first two loves, steam trains and aviation subjects. This led me to the RAF who in turn sent me to Africa to paint wildlife and on returning from that visit in 1960, I had my first one man show of wildlife paintings in London which sold out in the first twenty minutes. 

The more success I have enjoyed since then, the more I have learned and seen, moments which have filled me with despair and horror. It has been this success that has generated a strong motivation - an obligation to do something about conservation and in doing so, I am the luckiest man alive.
