By the year 1983 Lawrence had received a degree in School Counseling Psychology and Studio Art from the University of Missouri adding to his previous studies in English, History,

Psychology, Philosophy and Theology at Immaculate Conception Seminary, Conception,

Missouri.  An appreciation for nature, begun and nurtured on  his father’s farm in Kansas, is now nourished on the pinon filled hills and mountains; blue, blue skies, hot sun, cool winds; dry and  richly marbled, rocky earth of New Mexico.  Revelation of energy, pent up energy penned in strong contrasts and color, is a theme that is prevalent through out his work like the veins in rocks and the explosions of galaxies. His works are icons which reveal his spirit renewed by the varied cultural traditions of the southwest in  vivid color; expressive, usually biomorphic, abstract or surrealist forms;  religious symbols  and earthy-religious metaphors.  Online he has published two books combining words and his art.

His images are the result of hand and computer interaction—mouse pad and programs.  He has found a printer in Santa Fe to print on heavy, cold press, acid free paper using pigment ink (giclee).  He also prints from an Epson printer.
