Doing my part one stitch at a time.

“I explore, I find, I love, but I can not keep it all.” Wil Shepherd

Wil Shepherd is an artist brand of many forms, with much passion for my work as well as for our environment.

Wil Shepherd Studio has been in business creating art, home furnishing, and fashion for the last 35 years, a company I started at the age of 19.

My latest project is the re-engineering of clothing. My clothing line is available for both sexes, and many items are interchangeable. Each piece is unique with a focus on hand detailed craftsmanship.

My design philosophy is to re-purpose and reinvent clothing to create new garments combining and interchanging parts from several garments into a new fresh look.

“Doing so helps to save the planet from excess landfill, in an effort to do our part in reducing the carbon footprint.” “Discarded clothing and textiles are the 2nd largest pollutant we are facing in the fight on global pollution.”

“I find items all over the country. I often take road trips across the states, and have traveled about 80% of Americas secondary highways and back roads, often driving 30,000 to 40,000 miles a year. I refrain from the interstates and only take the back roads through small towns and much of unseen America. I have driven around the entire country on month long trips on several occasions, almost always with my dog, finding all kinds of amazing art, vintage and antiques. Both of my shops is a collective of my work, as well as treasures I find on my journeys.”

“I am excited to do what I can to contribute to reducing dangerous numbers facing our planet and environment. In all my art from my paintings often done on used and discarded canvas and board, and framed in vintage frames. To my embroidery which is done using discarded fabric samples. To my sculptures which incorporate found and discarded objects, using found and discarded items.”
