JOAN LAWSON

From primary school I knew I wanted to draw and paint, and was lucky enough to be accepted for Glasgow School of Art straight out of High School. There I studied Drawing and Painting, under wonderful tutors. After that followed teacher training college, and straight into secondary schools. So I have been a painter/teacher my whole adult life.  Teaching for me is a joy. It’s so wonderful to be able to coax talent out of people, many of whom don’t know they have any.  I’m glad I have jumped online, and can continue to teach virtually!

Based on a photo I took at Ayr Races. I completed a series of these paintings a few years ago, they are still quite popular.
