"Lambe’s success in pulling off the [Home Towns portrait] project is a testament to her willingness to take risks, her openness with both friends and strangers – a quality that endears her to her portrait-class students at the Woodstock School of Art – and most especially, her powers of observation." Lynn Woods for the Weekly Almanac, June 9, 2016

All of the paintings in these Home Towns projects are painted on 12"x12" (cm 30 x 30) canvas. The first group are from Woodstock, below are works from the Clonmel project. Further down (and on the title page for Gallery 2) are a variety of other portrait works including commissioned pieces. Also on the title page is an Artist's Statement on Portraiture in the 21st Century.
