Located on the edge of Canada's only desert, Louise Lambert’s studio is surrounded by the local vineyards that cover the hillsides above beautiful Okanagan Lake. Okanagan Wines are now considered among some of the best in the world.
Louise’s many showings throughout the valley have garnered wide acclaim, causing the local media to nickname her "The Lady of Light" for her ability to capture within her work the spectacular lights and shadows of the surrounding mountains, skies and vineyards.
Louise's wine art works are known for this advanced use of light, colours and the warmth that the two create together. A myriad of life experiences have formed Louise's style and her outlook to how she paints. "I take a holistic approach," she explains "I want people who see my art to feel better... feel better about the world that we live in and feel better about themselves. We live in a wonderful place in the world, and if my art can, in one small sense, make that a little more apparent, I have done my job."
Her artworks of the Vineyards of the Okanagan Valley are reminiscent of "old world" paintings of the Tuscan countryside, which bear a remarkable resemblance to the Okanagan Valley. When one views these works of art, it is impossible not to feel a part of the landscape... Just imagine, lunch by a vineyard, a baguette, cheese and a bottle of wine, to enjoy with that special someone in your life... "Wine and Art are the most natural of companions," says Louise.. "I am very fortunate to live amongst all of this beauty, and I try to share the joy that my surroundings give me, in my paintings".
Her breathtaking renditions of vineyards both local and abroad capture the true essence of the trade. Local estate wineries welcome her shows and displays, where both tourists and locals alike acquire her work as a way of taking home some of the ambience of their vineyard visit.
Louise's wine art paintings have been exhibited in galleries and in multiple juried shows. A former member of the Board of Directors of the Coppini Fine Arts Academy of San Antonio, Lambert’s originals can be found in fine homes throughout Canada, the United States, and Australia.
Louise has travelled the world and captured its complexity and beauty in both portraits and landscapes. Louise's artistic sojourn has taken her from art studies at Ryerson University to further private studies in the US, Canada, and Singapore. A random summer visit to the Okanagan Valley captured her heart, causing her to recently relocate to the area.
