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.

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. I am 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 am also DMC Embroidery Floss’s string artist. My string art journey began five years ago after many failed attempts at taking the Florida Bar Exam due to my dyslexia. I have also always had a rooted passion in the arts and my dyslexia has allowed me to take full advantage of that desire. At this moment I have never been happier in my life, sharing and teaching my passion of string art to everyone around the world!
