Laurence travels throughout Britain and Europe in search of subject matter with seascapes being of particular interest. In recent years he has spent the summer months travelling to locations in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus and Morocco. Laurence is drawn to vivid colour and the effects of bright light on water. His travels abroad have allowed him to paint with a 'Mediterranean' pallette, often giving his paintings a luminous quality. In addition to his work in oil, Laurence has completed numerous large scale mural commissions throughout the British Isles, Australia and New Zealand. Laurence completed a BA in Fine Art at Reading University in 1983. His works are exhibited throughout the British Isles including several prestigious London galleries, and he regularly exhibits with the royal institute of oil painters. He is now based in Cornwall.
