Will Shepherd

Back to The Collective

Will is a prolific artist, whose wide-ranging practice encompasses painting, drawing, collage and performance. At Project Art Works, Will focuses on large-scale painting. He often takes flowers as his subject, creating festive compositions that celebrate the joy of life.

Will has a deep appreciation of colour, using an extensive palette of bright hues to infuse his paintings with the pleasure he takes in mixing and choosing tones. An enthusiastic painter, Will works into the surface again and again to create layered and richly coloured works.

In the Project Art Works studio, Will works alongside other artists and enjoys balancing the social aspect of the studio with his desire to spend as much time as possible painting.

Will is one of 29 Artists who are featured in a new film from Project Art Works, I’ve Got Ideas. Don’t You Worry.
