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
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.
