Richard David Shepherd CBE FRSA FGRA (25 April 1931 – 19 September 2017) was a British artist. He was known as one of the world's most outspoken conservationists. He was born in London, England.

Shepherd was most famous for his paintings of steam locomotives (he owned a number of them) and wildlife, although he also often painted aircraft, portraits (notably The Queen Mother) and landscapes. His work has been extremely popular since the 1960s in limited edition print reproduction and poster form, as well as other media such as Wedgwood limited edition plates. He published five books about his art, including an autobiography.

Shepherd died on 19 September 2017 of Parkinson's disease in Manchester, England at the age of 86.
