Lawrence Coulson

Mad on cars, Lawrence was often give a blank piece of paper to draw his favorite models over and over again. Despite his early love of art, Lawrence left school with only a D grade in the subject, going to work in retail and eventually taking up the position of sales and marketing manager for a local family firm.

It was at this time that Lawrence''s father suggested he try his hand at painting and the first result was extremely encouraging. A few months later, with several paintings to his name, Lawrence was given the opportunity to hang some of his work in a local pub in Cambridge - a week later he had sold his very first painting for £30.00.

Throughout the 1980''s, Lawrence continued to paint in his spare time, gradually building up a reputation within local galleries who were selling more and more of his work.

His big break came in the summer of 1996, when a restaurant owner friend suggested he display his work on the premises on a commission-free basis.

The restaurant owner then suggested holding a private exhibition of Lawrence''s work which Lawrence organised and marketed. He decided to invite The Halcyon Gallery along to his show, who were so impressed that they bought virtually every picture in the exhibition.

Over the next year, Lawrence worked flat out on his paintings in his free time to keep up with demand, while still holding down his full-time job as a manager. It was only at the point of complete exhaustion that Lawrence realised his career decision had to be made, and on Independence Day in 1997 he declared himself officially an artist.

With his major exhibition at The Halcyon Gallery in 1998 a complete sell-out, Lawrence has gone from strength to strength.
