Good day world!
My name is Derek Sheppard. I am a self taught artist working with acrylics on canvas. I also use acrylic mediums to create special effects with landscape art. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of my free time (and disposable income) hiking, snowboarding and scuba diving around BC. My artwork is inspired by my outdoor adventures or adventures had by close friends of mine.
I believe that my artwork should express the emotions of the experience of being in the outdoors. I try to capture the seconds when one stops, takes a few breaths and lets the surrounding environment deep into their psyche. These experiences have brought me to the peaks of mountains and the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. I hope that my artwork brings this positive energy to your home.
I welcome commissions and strive to provide a unique and personal service to my artwork. If you provide me with a rough idea of the size and what you want, I will come back with a proposal and cost estimate a short time later. I have completed this arrangement for many of my artworks and my customers have always been satisfied with the results. I am satisfied as it provided me with challenging opportunities to learn new techniques and expand my artistic horizons.
My future goals include plein air painting as well as constantly improving my landscape painting techniques.
Comments about my artwork are welcome. If you are interested in my paintings, or would like to commission a painting contact me throught the nobullart website or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about myself and artwork. I look forward to hearing from you.
