Bruce K. Lawes

Born in 1962 in Toronto, Canada, Bruce K. Lawes is an internationally collected artist with a passion for animal art and conservation. He studied part-time at the Ontario College of Art and Design but attributes most of his success to the firsthand encounters he fostered with the modern masters of the day.

Lawes has shown his work at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Briscoe Western Art Museum, Brookgreen Gardens, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, the George A. Spiva Center for the Arts, the Hiram Blauvelt Museum, the Houston Museum of Natural Science, the National Mississippi River Museum, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art. His work has been auctioned at the prestigious Coeur d’Alene Art Auction and the Jackson Hole Art Auction.

In 2020, Southwest Art magazine wrote, “The 58-year-old artist has forged an admirable career as one of the top painters working today in the genres of wildlife, equine, historical, and figurative art through a singular combination of innate talent, meticulous research, and old-fashioned hard work.”

International Artist magazine has written, “One of the first things you notice about the art of Bruce Lawes is the artist’s versatility; whether it be a figurative painting, a landscape, or an equine, his work always upholds a strong level of quality, craftsmanship, and technical skill.”

Art of the West magazine recently praised him as “one of the most versatile among today’s field of highly skilled representational artists; Lawes moves with seamless articulation between the genres of wildlife and equine portraiture, landscapes, and figurative renditions of historic events.”

Lawes’s passion to paint is only surpassed by his reason for painting. The “why” will always bring him the most satisfaction and purpose.

Lawes is a Signature Member of Artists for Conservation, the Society of Animal Artists, and Oil Painters of America.

Bruce K. Lawes is represented by the Broadmoor Galleries, Colorado Springs, Colorado; Settlers West Galleries, Tucson, Arizona; and Trailside Galleries–online.
