Shepherd’s practice is the creation of their living, internal landscape. The artist is interested in the intimate, the handmade and the obsessional, their practice aiming to communicate a deeply personal relationship to the natural world and the unseen spheres of reality; the creative process becoming a means of communication with more than human forms of life. They wish to understand the creative act as an attempt to connect with those who have gone before, reaching back beyond the human to our animal, plant, and microbial ancestors.
