Lawrence started her art studies in calligraphy at Cerritos College in 1980, and moved on to study with some of the world’s most accomplished calligraphers. Her work has appeared the Society for Calligraphy magazine, Los Angeles Journal of Calligraphy, Somerset Studio Magazine, The Book of Artful Days and The Calligraphers Engagement Calendar.
She has taught classes in Cambria, as well as many other locations throughout California.
Her studies in calligraphy became a gateway Lawrence to study and explore a variety of art forms such watercolor, bookbinding, collage, origami, paste papers, marbling, block printing and the art of Ukrainian egg decoration, “Pysanky.” She will speak about these arts in her talk.
Lawrence, of Santa Maria, is a former Cambria resident whose works have been exhibited in the Cambria Library.
