ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Terence Lambert is an acclaimed wildlife painter from Powys, Wales. His work has been reproduced in more than forty publications
Born in 1951 in Farnham, Surrey, Terence studied at Guildford College of Art in Surrey. His career began in the early 1970s with his illustrations for Collins British Birds, where he was quickly recognised as an important new talent in the world of ornithological painting.
In 1984, he spent two months in spring and autumn in the Himalayas working with the World Pheasant Association. That same year he travelled to Oman researching a project commissioned by Shell Oil Company, producing six paintings which were then gifted to the Sultan of Oman.
His subjects are always meticulously observed and frequently show an unusual facet. He has mounted several one man shows including at Moma the Gallery in Machynlleth.
Over the years he has been ready to try and embrace new techniques and media, the most recent of which seems to be using ink on scraper board.
The Jackdaw dates from the 1970’s, early in his carreer and is a good indication of what was to come.

Every good painting should have a story to go with it, something to stimulate the imagination.
In this case, the painting speaks for itself. This is the quality of work which attracted the attention of Collins the publishers of probably the best natural history guides. Then imagine travelling to the Hymalya to see rare pheasants in their natural habitat, and being commissioned to do so by the leading authority on the subject of pheasants of the world, The World Pheasant Association. His study of a Blue Eared Pheasant in a Rhododendron (sadly, not the one in my garden) is something to behold. Then imagine rubbing shoulders with Sheikhs of Araby in the Arabian desert looking for white Oryx.
This Jackdaw led to all that.
