Kathy Lawrence Biography

 Kathy Lawrence grew up and studied art
 in New York City, in an environment ideal
 for a budding artist. Her earliest childhood
 memories are of happily painting alongside
 her mother in her studio, using her mom's
 best sable brushes and paints.

 Today, like her famous mother, Lawrence
 is well known to collectors for her paper doll
 books. She often modeled for her mother,
 artist Queen Holden, whose paper doll
 books from the 1930s to the 1960s are
 highly collectible and are still being
 reproduced today.

 Surrounded by her mother's artist friends,
 Lawrence was familiar with illustrators such
 as Maude Fangel, whose lovely pastels of
 babies graced magazine covers from the
 20s through the 40s, and children's book
 artists Eulalie and Ruth Newton.

 Recalls Lawrence, "I was blessed with a
 wonderfully nurturing childhood, and I'm
 sure that has had a role in making children
 such a favorite subject of mine. Painting
 the things that delight me — a child's little
 hands in prayer, the play of light on a
 fringed coverlet, the precious feeling of a
 baby in one's arms — makes artwork ever
 fascinating and challenging. I love to
 include the timeless old toys that are a
 child's patient and loving companions, and
 to place them in surroundings that feel
 familiar, comfortable and safe, like the
 childhood I remember."

 The charming illustrations of Kathy
 Lawrence have been included in the Society
 of Illustrators' prestigious Annual of
 American Illustration. Lawrence has painted
 for a major greeting card company for many
 years, and her artwork has also appeared
 on collectors' plates and giftware. Among
 her portrait commissions is the official
 portrait of former Los Angeles mayor,
 Thomas Bradley. Lawrence, her husband
 and daughter live in Texas and share a
 passion for old historic houses. Together,
 they are restoring a turn-of-the-century
 Queen Anne Victorian home.
