BethAnn Lawson

BethAnn Lawson is a modern-impressionist painter who lives and works in Seattle, Washington.  Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, she was taught by and is heavily influenced by her surrealist painter-father, who was a founding member of the San Francisco Street Artist Association.   After graduating from the Institute of Design in San Francisco, she moved to Seattle and spent nearly three decades as a textile designer, graphic designer and illustrator, but returned to her love of painting after the passing of her father in 2011.


Her current work blurs the edges of both figurative and abstract, creating tangible objects and memories from unconventional, yet familiar shapes and custom colors.


Artist Statement:

“I can lose myself for hours as I take apart the images and carefully put them back together emphasizing colors, rhythms and patterns.  I hope to capture little glimpses of life containing whimsy, the secrets of strangers and the striking architecture of both nature and man.”
