Get to know Brigit Lambert, a Melbourne based artist and illustrator.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
"My name is Brigit, I’m 25 and I’m from Melbourne. I studied at the Victorian College of the Arts with a degree in fine arts. I love watching films, my dogs Henry and Harvey, gardening, cooking and peanut butter. I hate loud eaters, ham steak and people talking during a film at the cinema."
Tell us about your creative work? What inspires you?
"My work is observational, often exploring dark themes. I find a lot of inspiration from the films I watch and my own personal life, observing the people around me. I like to have a lot of control over my drawing, I also like things to be organised and neat, working digitally really helps with that."
What was the first thing you ever remember making?
"I don’t have the best memory, but apparently I frequently took photos with my Barbie camera when I was a kid."
Every artist has their own unique creative ritual, so what’s yours?
"Normally I set myself up with a coffee and some form of trash TV show while I work, or sometimes I just listen to music, depending on my mood."
What is the one piece of work that you are truly proud of?
"I find it really hard to not lose interest in my work once I finish it, it’s very easy to pick it apart. But there was a series I did somewhat recently, which I’m still working on, based around cults and the colours associated with them. I’m really happy with how it’s turned out and it always feels satisfying to make something pretty close to what I had pictured in my head."
What would be your creative New Years resolution be for 2019?
