I'm Skip Lawrence, an Artist and Teacher
I am passionate about art. I love making it, sharing it, talking about it, looking at it, and teaching it. I have been at it since I was twelve and there was never any doubt in my mind that I would spend my life in art. I am very fortunate to be able to say that I have.
