Brooklyn Lamb’s fearless painting style comes with a message: “Stay Wild.”
The 32-year-old artist from Clawson says she’s a firm believer that all people are “creative and wild — whether they accept it or not.”
“I feel like I’ve never been a strong communicator, and I’m drawn to animals as they cannot speak,” she says. “They have their own language and yet somehow know what we are feeling.”
Lamb says the eyes in her animal portraits are “the nucleus” of her work.
“They graciously tell all secrets,” she says.
Lamb’s artwork is featured in private galleries worldwide. Her latest series, “Stay Wild,” has been exhibited in Detroit at Two James Distillery and is on display at Great Lakes Coffee in Midtown for one month.
