Born 1951, Farnham Surrey – Trained at Guildford school of Art
“The ability to draw with confidence and accuracy is the great liberator allowing the artist’s observation and imagination freedom to create unique images.” Terence Lambert’s career was launched in the early seventies with his illustrations for the Collins Books of British Birds and he was quickly recognised as an important new talent in the world of ornithological painting.
From the start, his technically flawless mastery of the watercolour medium set him apart from other illustrators, but it is his rare gift of being able to enter the psyche of his subjects which has led to his recognition today as being not only a superb illustrator, but an artist whose name ranks with the best in the world working in his field.
Past projects have taken him on expeditions across the Himalayas, Africa, North America and to Oman where he was commissioned to produce six major paintings for the Sultan of Oman. Other major collectors include the McCartneys and the Astor family. His work has also been selected for many of the world’s most prestigious wildlife exhibitions, including The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wisconsin, USA and the inaugural show of the Society of Wildlife Art for the Nations at The Guildhall in London. In 1999 the Welsh Arts Council funded a major retrospective Exhibition that travelled throughout Wales. His work has been reproduced in more than forty publications to date and his repertoire of medium has extended from watercolour to include a mastery on canvas and a unique method of working with ink on scraperboard.
Behind every painting the landscape of Mid Wales has been an obvious inspiration to him. He chose to live in Montgomeryshire over thirty years ago and his wife Glenys taught for seventeen years in Llanidloes Primary school.
Since Terence’s first solo exhibition in London in 1972, he has continued to exhibit his work annually throughout the whole of Great Britain. The 80’s and 90’s saw his works travelling in Northern Europe and the USA with sell out shows in both London and Wales. This culminated in a prestigeous Retrospective Exhibition supported by the Welsh Arts Council, which was exhibited throughout the Principality.
