NAKED FOR WILDLIFE IN MAYFAIR

 
 
 
Emily Lamb, grand daughter of wildlife artist and conservationist, David Shepherd CBE, and one of the UK's most talented young artists is to show a selection of new paintings this November at Mews in the heart of Mayfair. Along with her striking, modern canvasses, Emily will be painting live nudes in the gallery donating a percentage of sales to raise funds for The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.

Entitled 'Naked for Wildlife' the exhibition features a new series of wildlife paintings inspired by Emily's travels in Africa and Asia and, most recently her time spent as artist in residence at an exclusive lodge in South Africa and time spent with the Masai in Tanzania.

Beautifully observed, Emily captures the spirit of her subjects in fabulous mixed media.

Emily then attended Falmouth University Art College for her Foundation Course and having secured a place at Charles Cecil School in Florence began her studies at their associated Lavender Hill Studios in London where she continues to study.
