As an artist, Shane Lamb has been capturing the beauty of Alaska most of his life. He received his formal art training from Brigham Young University, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1990. Since then he has dedicated his professional life to painting the Alaska he knows, drawing inspiration from a land he considers one of Nature’s most beautiful.
Although he has been influenced and inspired by other artists, his recognizable style is uniquely his own. His works of art are the culmination of many hours spent in the field studying and experiencing the subject of each painting before it is painted. Through his use of beautiful color, combined with a strong sense of light and composition, he creates work with a mood and realism that sets it apart.
Lamb works in acrylics and oils, producing between 5-10 originals a year. As a self-published artist he is known for his limited-edition art prints and hand-embellished giclee canvases with many sold-out editions.
Each year Shane Lamb contributes his work to many important causes. He has been chosen as “featured artist” for many of Alaska’s most important fundraising events.
His artwork has been commissioned by various corporations in Alaska including, The Alaska Railroad, The Alaska State Fair, KAKM channel 7 and British Petroleum. He has also been awarded several 1% for Art, permanent art installations, featuring his art in public buildings by the State of Alaska. His painting “Where Men and Trains Seem Small” was selected to hang in the Anchorage Museum of History and Art’s “All Alaska Juried Art Exhibition.”
In 2010 he was Ducks Unlimited artist of the year with his work “Sunset on Creamer’s Field.”
Shane Lamb’s limited-edition prints, giclee canvases and original paintings can be found in galleries and private collections throughout Alaska and the U.S.
