Molly Lamb was born in Burnaby, BC in 1922. In 1938 she attended the Vancouver School of Art, pursuing drawing and painting and was strongly influenced by Jack Shadbolt.

In 1942, she joined the Canadian Women's Army Corps and became the first woman to be officially designated as a war artist in Canada. While in London, Molly Lamb met fellow war artist Bruno Bobak, whom she married. 

As an artist, she focused on two themes: crowds of people and floral compositions. Her ability to render vitality through form in both watercolor and oil became a stylistic trademark of her painting over the years.​

“Molly was one of our cherished artist-patrons. One of our fondest memories of Molly was her week with us at art camp,” says Yolande Martinello, Director of Artists for Kids. “Molly painted small watercolour poppies the journal of every camper that week. She endeared herself to every one of us. We will miss her very much.”

Molly Lamb Bobak passed away on March 2, 2014 and was the last surviving member of the offical war artists. News of her death was covered in the UK's Telegraph​
