The story so far…
Leigh was born and raised in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. He lived here for the first twenty years of his life. Lambert began to draw as soon as he could hold a pencil. His family quickly recognising his artistic flair. As he progressed through school his exceptionally detailed creations captured the attentions of his teachers. They admired his canny knack for capturing a view. However, the artist describes himself as mostly self taught. He has received no formal art qualifications or training.
Leigh relocated to Warwickshire with his family in 1996. Here he focused on the development of his technique. It was on leaving Newcastle that he began to appreciate the nature of his upbringing. What he had once seen as a concrete jungle now seeming strangely beautiful. Taking inspiration from his childhood,
Lamberts pieces have a strong sense of nostalgia. They evoke fond memories of a youth that many can relate to.
Lambert is an accomplished artist across a range of media. He is most commonly recognised for working with oils on board. His use of colour is minimal and depicts the happiness in the child but remains an otherwise monochromatic landscapes, capturing the joy and vitality of youth.
