The first Canadian war artist, Molly Lamb first began her service in 1942, where she worked in a canteen where she prepared the officers' meals in Vancouver. At the time, she had an illustrated diary. After a meeting with A.Y. Jackson, he appreciated his talent and recommended it to the Canadian War Archives. She was then selected and began her mandate to illustrate the daily life of women during this troubled period. Grateful to Jackson, she made a sketch of her self-portrait, showing a bouquet of flowers to A.Y. Jackson.
