Growing up in the 1930's, David Shepherd's one ambition was to be a game warden in Kenya and so, on leaving school, he went to Kenya and was told by the National Parks people that he was not wanted. David Shepherd met Robin Goodwin, a professional artist, who took him under his wing. After three years with Robin, he started his artistic career pursuing his first two loves, steam engines and aviation. The latter led him to the RAF who began to fly him around the world as their guest. The RAF took him to Kenya where he was commissioned by them to paint his very first wildlife painting and he never looked back.
On returning to London, he had his first one-man show of wildlife paintings and sold out in 20 minutes. In 1962, David Shepherd painted an elephant picture called 'Wise Old Elephant', which was produced as an unlimited print by Solomon & Whitehead in England and which fast became a best-seller. The David Shepherd Conservation Foundation has given away more than 3 million in grants to help wildlife.
