Tom Lamb was born to be an artist.
His father Derek Lamb is an award-winning artist and animator who inspired and encouraged him to become an artist as well.
As a self-taught artist, Tom has had his works exhibited in many galleries in the Los Angeles area. His artwork is far from ordinary. Tom is a cartographic artist and specializes in customizable hand drawn maps and custom home illustrations. Most of his maps are of the Los Angeles area where he has lived for many years, however, he is able to draw a map of anywhere based on Internet resources.
The maps Tom draws range from being very detailed to being very simplified, however each map is expertly hand drawn in ink and then colored using Adobe Photoshop. Each map is designed to be printed in a 12 by 18 inch or larger format for display.
