David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation
David Shepherd is known internationally as one of the world's leading wildlife artists. He is also a passionate conservationist and he freely admits that he owes all his success to the animals he paints.
Prolific in output as a painter with a brimful of stories and anecdotes, David says he is an extrovert who enjoys talking. He likes being known as a natural promoter and an ardent ambassador for conservation - it's the way he is.
David became an artist in his tender years after his ambition to become a Gamewarden in Kenya's National Parks was thwarted. Beginning by painting birds, David moved onto Aviation pictures and realised that he could get commissions by giving his aviation paintings to the airlines.
Powertraveller is proud to be supporting DSWF by supplying their Gamewardens with the fantastic powermonkey explorer which keeps the warden's mobile phones, etc charged up at all times - essential whilst they are out on anti-poaching patrols.
