In 1911 Edmund Blampied set up his own studio in London and rapidly became in demand as an illustrator for various publications of the time, and also many books. During this period the Leicester Gallery in London regularly exhibited his dry points and etchings, culminating in a one man show in 1920. His first exhibition in the USA was held in New York in 1922, and soon after he had a further one man show at the Leicester Gallery of his paintings and drawings. 1926 saw Edmund Blampied travelling extensively in Southern France and North Africa, for five months, resulting in a major exhibition at Reid and Lefevre Gallery in London in 1929.
In 1938 Edmund Blampied became a member of the Royal Society of British Artists, and in the same year moved back to Jersey with his wife. Although trapped on Jersey for five years during the Second World War, he continued to draw and paint. His studies of life in Jersey during the War and directly afterwards are perhaps the only artistic record of the still bucolic pace of life on the island at that time, with a particular talent for capturing the movement of animals and their human companions.
Edmund Blampied spent the rest of his life on Jersey, continually inspired by the landscape, and the unique characters and activities of his native island. He died in 1966.
