"I am hugely influenced by my local landscape. Living on the edge of the Cambridgeshire fens everything is dominated by the huge skies and endless horizons."

Lawrence Coulson grew up surrounded by fine art, his father being the successful painter Gerald Coulson. He gradually got into the world of art after a local pub landlord sold a couple of his early works for £30 each. He then began to sell more artwork in local galleries and build a reputation for himself.
Lawrence Coulson has been influenced by his local landscape and the Cambridgeshire fens. There are large empty vistas, punctuated by telegraph poles or the odd church spire. He is inspired by dramatic sunsets and heavy stormy skies, and is fascinated by the atmospheres of places rather than just their geography.
The Feeling of a Place
He says: "I am more interested in how certain places make you feel, what kind of feelings they evoke. It's the same with my other source of reference, the huge empty beaches of Norfolk, especially in the winter when it feels as though one is the only person on mile after mile of sand. You feel almost overcome by the power and drama of the storm blowing in from the sea."
