David Shepherd CBE FRSA
Earlier this year I was delighted to take on board the responsibility of the Farnham Arts Society Salvin Event and this led to my meeting Melanie Shepherd at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation head office to discuss the event which will take place in September. I was so impressed and inspired by this visit because the offices are small but the amazing passion held within the walls hits you as soon as you enter. Since then I have also met David at the Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010 exhibition where my work was amongst the finalists on show at the Mall Galleries in London.
The Salvin Event this year will take place at Farnham Castle and it is a wonderful venue. Several meetings later at the castle and with posters and tickets now advertising the event it is time to jump in quickly if you would like to attend.
Due to my full and crazy art life which seems to be getting busier by the second I have had to hand over the responsibility of organisation but I know this will be a very special and memorable evening. I listened to Davids speech at the Mall Galleries earlier this year and spoke to him during the evening. He is a true inspiration as an artist and for all he has achieved in his life. For details of an evening in a castle with one of the greatest wildlife artists please see Farnham Arts Society news page.
