Meet Lawrence Ross

String Art

Hi everyone! I’m Lawrence Ross and I am Let’s Craft’s resident string artist. I run a small string art kit business called String of the Art, where I have sold thousands of string art kits all over the world.

Following law school graduation, my dyslexia got in the way of passing the Florida Bar Exam. After five attempts and fails, I knew this hurdle could not hinder my success. Through the adversity, my passion for the arts helped keep me going. It led me to closing the law books and bringing my dream of String of the Art to life! Now, several years later, I have taught thousands of new string artists all over the world how to master the craft through my kits.

String art has led me to wonderful opportunities. I created an exclusive string art kit for Starbucks, which is currently being sold in their three Starbuck Roastery Reserves. I am also a string artist for Primitive By Kathy (“PBK”). Many of my PBK designs have been sold in department stores like Nordstrom’s and Dillard’s. I have pieces hanging in hotels and I have won awards for my string art.

ACRYLICS, DIGITAL MULTIMEDIA, POP ART PETS

I’ve been creating art since I was a child. My work has ranged from children’s book illustration, cartooning, graphite photo-realism renderings, to a line of children’s clothing and accessories called “Sunshine Kids.” I work predominantly in the digital medium, creating pieces that incorporate a variety of elements such as airbrush, acrylic, ink, oil, etc. The digital images provide an opportunity for reprint on canvas or print in a variety of sizes – I love the flexibility of the medium. I also enjoy working with acrylic, vintage/salvage. Creating brings me great joy and peace. Connecting and sharing my work with others is incredibly fulfilling. My work has been featured in a variety of local publications such as So Scottsdale, Scottsdale Independent News, Art in Phoenix, The Jewish News and Jewish Life Magazine.
