Lawrence has been quilting for over 10 years and has been a photographer for over 30 years. Lawrence has always been interested in art, and quilting is another art form he has learned to appreciate. Since joining the Uhuru Quilters Guild in 2018, Lawrence has exhibited his quilts at Montpelier House Museum, the Quilt and Sew Expo, and other art centers in the Washington metropolitan area.
A dare led Lawrence to take a sewing class with his wife, Kim. Lawrence told his wife “if you can do it, I can do it better” and said anyone can sew. He realized soon that statement was far from the truth, but he liked what he was doing and stuck with it.
Lawrence developed his style by incorporating his knowledge of photography and the use of computer art programs into his quilts over the years.
