I'm Skip Lawrence, an Artist and Teacher

Skip LawrenceI am passionate about art. I love making it, sharing it, talking about it, looking at it, and teaching it. I have been at it since I was twelve and there was never any doubt in my mind  that I would spend my life in art.  I am very fortunate to be able to say that I have.

I share that with my wife, best friend,artist, Diane Santarella and our dog, Rothko "The Wonder Dog" in our home and studio in rural, central Maryland. When I am not teaching or painting I can be found on a local stream, fly fishing or playing a round of golf or enjoying an exhibit at an art museum.
