Nathan Shepperd
Oil on goalkeeper gloves

Nathan Shepperd played for Brentford FC when I met him at an art fair in 2021. He enquired about a commission having seen my Football Icons series of oil paintings on Spurs shirts. He then moved to Dundalk FC to play first team football in the League of Ireland Premier Division. Having also represented Wales at U21 level it seemed appropriate to paint a double portrait on a pair of goalkeeper gloves which also feature the Welsh dragon.
