Born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada Lawrie is a self-taught artist whose unique drawing style has developed through his years working as a technical draftsman in British Columbia’s civil service.
In 1987, life experiences caused the artist to focus inward, seeking ways of self expression. From this point on, his own style of pointillism and line drawing has been developing. He has always fostered an interest in the arts and has been encouraged through the artistic community. In the early 90’s, Dignan apprenticed with a stained glass artisan who would become his mentor. This relationship had a very positive influence on Lawrie. It encouraged and supported his natural creative energies and gave him the confidence to explore his own direction in drafting and design. That experience, coupled with his years spent as a technical draftsman has strongly influenced the stylization of his landscape works…
