Welcome to the official website of Mandy Shepherd.
We hope you will enjoy the portfolio of drawings and paintings of different subjects that embrace more than 30 years of working in Wildlife and latterly with the Military. Her Gallery of work also includes many other images that have been a source of inspiration throughout her career.
Her early work and exhibitions were dominated by Wildlife and a commitment to conservation and it was this, in 1996, that took her 8,000 miles from home to the Falkland Islands to write and illustrate her first book 'The Falkland Islands an
This in turn opened a new world and direction into the world of the
Military. In the last twenty years Mandy has travelled to Bosnia, Kosovo, Brunei, Oman, and Iraq on commission, painting aircraft, ships old and new, and the working life of military personnel.
She has also been involved in recording recent military history of active service in both Iraq and Afghanistan for all three services.
When not on commission Mandy operates as a guide taking wildlife tours mostly to Africa in support of Elephant conservation for DSWF and also to other areas of the world including the South Atlantic and Antarctica.
These trips additionally provide an excellent opportunity to research new ideas and pursue her work to a new level.
