Podi Lawrence



I started drawing and painting at a very early age and it has continued to be a big part of my life. After a foundation course at the Harrow School of Art (now middx Uni) I re-learnt, and re-learnt until I found my genre - my love of studying people. A residency with the Wycombe Swan Theatre was followed by one with the English National Ballet, and later, and for 10 more years, with the Waterloo Jazz Festival in Canada. I gained a certificate in Adult Education in 1988 and have run classes, demonstrations and holidays since then in England, France, Canada and Panama. I now offer 1:1 tuition for serious students at my studio in Portland. And painting trips to the island of KALYMNOS in GREECE IN SEPTEMBER. Full information, samples of recent paintings and my biography can be read on my website. www.podilawrenceartist.com
