“Veganism has given me the power and the confidence that I have been searching for”

Maria meets artist Emily Lamb, an ethical influencer for the voiceless

Blue skies are punctuated by tiny fluffy clouds as I start the drive to Worcestershire. Riding shotgun with me is Emily Lamb, renowned artist, granddaughter of the late David Shepherd, and inspired vegan warrior.

What came first, art or veganism?

“Art. I painted my first picture when I was three years old. From the age of 21, I travelled back and forth to Africa every year. I have always been that mad artist that was wild and furious. Drugs, sex and rock ‘n’ roll, that was my projection. Suddenly, I saw that was leading me to disaster. In my sphere in London, veganism just wasn’t on the radar. It was time for change, and the pivotal part of that change was in what I ate. I knew deep down I was not aligned to who I was, and I was ignoring it. I moved to Cornwall and two years in, I crashed. I had to immerse myself in another way of living.”

About Vegan Life

I count my lucky stars every day to do a job that I love. But, the best part of it- is being surrounded by likeminded people. Working at a vegan-run company, alongside passionate staff who care about animals and the environment, not only means I am constantly inspired, but also supported in my own ethics and principles. Sadly, for so many people, this isn’t the case. Many companies struggle to support, from not providing plant-based milk alternatives in an office or forcing vegan staff to wear animal products as part of their uniform. Fat Gay Vegan gives some great advice on negotiating being a vegan in a non-vegan workplace on p32 and we’ve rounded up some great vegan-friendly career ideas on p106. We also spoke to two entrepreneurs who have bit the bullet and set up their own vegan businesses — they give us their tips on p112. I was contacted a little while ago by the talented vegan photographer Jordan Hall, who was working on a project called What does it look like to be vegan? Jordan’s goal was to highlight the diversity and individuality within our community and hear some of the stories of fellow passionate vegans. We’re delighted to showcase her work on p34. Also, we have a brilliant interview with the inspiring Joey Carbstrong on p18, we chat to campaigner Nina Jackel, the powerhouse behind Lady Freethinker, on p28, and Maria Slough meets artist and ethical influencer Emily Lamb on p96.
