Lawrie Williamson was born in Scotland in 1932. He was educated in Derbyshire and at the age of sixteen won a major exhibition to study at the Nottingham College of Art. This was followed by Nottingham University and L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. The subjects for his paintings vary widely, drawn from a wealth of experience and observation. The one common factor is light. A trotter on the beach, a landscape, a beery pub interior - each painting is filled with a light of its own which remains undimmed even in a darkening room. Twice winner of the Stanley Grimm prize as well as the Corenellisen prize at the Annual Exhibition of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, also the Canson Prize at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, he paints predominantly in oils but also in watercolours and pastels.
