Sally Hynard has been a freelance artist for more than 20 years, and her work has appeared in children’s books, magazines, greetings cards and advertising.

She has been shortlisted for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s Wildlife Artist of the Year award, for her work ‘Urban Mischief’.

The judges will make their final selection on Tuesday morning, ahead of the private viewing and prize-giving the same evening in London.

Sally said: “I am thrilled to be shortlisted again for this award and I feel privileged to participate in the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation which supports endangered wildlife.

“I’m inspired by the surrounding wildlife in a rural setting where I live.

“I am also represented by Gallery 1066 based in Baldock, their support and encouragement help with further inspiration.”

The international event – in its 10th year – will showcase some of the world’s best wildlife art at London’s Mall Galleries this summer.

Event organiser Shauna Rees said: “The sheer diversity of media and form this year has created an extraordinary celebration of the natural world and a huge challenge for the judges.”

Judge Gary Hodges said: “This year’s shortlist brings the wild to life.

“From the silence of a shark casting its shadowy form on the ocean bed to the scuttling of armadillos, the peacefulness of hippos wallowing in the early morning sun and the symphony of bird song at dusk, selecting the overall winner from this amazing collection will be extremely hard.”

Sally has worked for major design groups in the UK and internationally, for clients including Queen’s Golden Jubilee for Royal Doulton, Harrods, Woods of Windsor, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s.

She became a Member of The Wildlife Art Society a few years ago. Currently working as a fine artist, her work can be seen throughout galleries, exhibitions and fine art auctions.

Each piece in the exhibition at the Mall Galleries is for sale, with profits split 50/50 between the artists and the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation’s wildlife conservation projects across Africa and Asia. Since 2007, the event has raised more than £350,000 to help protect some the world’s most endangered wildlife.
