Podi Lawrence

Painting has always been the main focus in my life. Intrigued by the emotional reaction that can come from colour combinations and fluid expressive lines. I like to keep the brush strokes visible without being an intrusion to the final image. Its like playing with paint. I find that the subject matter can dictate which media I use, loving all of them for their different ways of working and producing an image. My residency in 1993 with the England National Ballet pushed my work to a new level. Working with the dancers and sketching live performances made me work quicker. My most recent paintings concentrate on the patterns and colours in shadows particularly as seen in the tropics or a hot sunny day. Over a 40 year career in fine art I have produced illustrations for print and official and private Portraits, landscapes and seascapes. The sizes range from small intimate painterly landscapes to wall murals. I still love a challenge.
