Coulson, Lawrence (1962 - ).
English landscape painter.
Throughout the 1980's, Lawrence continued to paint in his spare time.
In 1996, a restaurant owner friend suggested holding a private exhibition of Lawrence's work. He decided to invite The Halcyon Gallery who were so impressed that they bought virtually every picture in the exhibition.
In 1997 he declared himself officially an artist. With his major exhibition at The Halcyon Gallery in 1998 a complete sell-out, he has gone from strength to strength.
His work has been compared to one of the great masters, Turner.
