A Powys based artist is selling one of his paintings in aid of Wales Air Ambulance.

Terence Lambert, from Llan, is currently holding a gallery exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Machynlleth.

His painting, ‘Long Tailed Tits’ will be sold to benefit Wales Air Ambulance, with all the money from the sale being donated to the charity.

The painting has been priced at £850 and his arts exhibition at Machynlleth will be held until September 17.

Terence has been a long-time supporter of Wales Air Ambulance and has donated on a monthly basis for many years, but this is the first time he will be using his art to raise money for the charity.


He said: “I felt this was an opportunity to support a service vital to rural mid Wales. This is a service that really does save lives.

“We have personal experience of a good friend and local farmer who probably wouldn’t have survived a recent life-threatening accident on a quad bike.”

Mr Lambert’s career began in the 1970s, with illustrations for a series of ‘Collins Books of British Birds’.

Recognised as an important talent in the world of ornithological painting, his projects have taken him on expeditions across the Himalayas, Africa, North America and to Oman where he was commissioned to produce six major paintings for the Sultan of Oman.

He was approached by Wales’ Air Ambulance community fundraiser, Dougie Bancroft, to see if he would want to support the life saving charity.

Mr Bancroft said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Terence wanted to help raise funds for our Charity. Terence is an incredible international artist, and his paintings are outstanding.

“The ‘Long Tailed Tits’ painting is beautiful and apart from being a wonderful purchase for someone, the person purchasing the painting can do so knowing they’re helping saving lives across Wales.

“The donation of the painting will help us keep our four helicopters in the air and our rapid response vehicles on the road. Thank you so much, Terence, we really do appreciate your support.”
