Only five years have passed since Ron Lawson committed to painting professionally. In that time his emergence from little known to one of Scotland’s most familiar and widely collected artists, has been remarkable by both its sense of urgency and the universal appeal of his work.
Ron has been visiting and exploring the potential of the Inner Isles, with recent trips to Islay, Jura, Gigha, Mull & Arran introducing new territory and subject matter for the artist’s ongoing exploration of the Scottish Western Isles.
Born in 1960, Ron spent his early years on a farm in Mid-Lothian, Scotland before embarking on a career in the art studio of a Dundee based publishing house during which time he progressively developed the dynamic and highly individual palette and technique that is central to his work today. With a passion for dramatic and sparsely populated locations, Ron has spent many years exploring and capturing the wild remoteness and majesty of the Outer Hebrides and Scottish Highlands.
In 2010 after 35 years, Ron left his career to concentrate his time fully on painting. His remarkable, contemporary Scottish landscapes appeal to an international audience, and are included in private collections worldwide. Ron exhibits regularly in Scotland, London, Toronto and New York.
