David Shepherd

David Shepherd is a self taught artist from Yorkshire, UK. His life as an artist began in 1996 after he suffered a heart attack in Germany. This life-altering experience led David to seek an escape which would allow his body to re-cooperate and relax, painting became just this. He found that painting allowed him to fully immerse himself into the subject within his minds eye, taking him into a dimension of peace.Becoming an established artist became his new direction in life.
From 1998 David has continually developed his unique style, he now chooses to use acrylics as this paint dries quickly and gives the paintings beautiful depth. He also likes to use a pallet knife as this tool gives way to texture, bringing out opportunities for expression and imagination. In recent years David has produced artwork which is mainly African inspired, these paintings have become very popular, selling from his studio and a local gallery from which he is currently exhibiting. However David also enjoys painting wildlife including horses, birds of prey and landscapes.
