Luke Shepherd is a Welsh sculptor, living in the Dartmoor National Park with his wife and terrier, Mukti. His bronze portraits are collected throughout the world by museums, universities, private and public collections.
His most recent commission was for the University of Chicago Booth School of Business with bronzes in the foyers of campuses in Chicago, London and Hong Kong.
Luke is one of the few sculptors worldwide who uses sculpture to teach plastic surgeons how to understand the 3-D shapes of the head and face. This is directly applied to their surgery.
Luke teaches 4 sculpture courses each year. The Sculpture for Surgeons course is in London and 3 portrait sculpture courses each year in Devon.
Luke's hobbies include Tai Chi (he runs a small Tai Chi school in Devon) and electric guitar, playing in a local band (quite loudly).
