About Ursula Lawley
Ursula Lawley, BA (Hons) - Fine Artist
Ursula Lawley is a local artist, based in Devizes. She draws inspiration from the beauty of the Wiltshire countryside and from the natural world in general.
Having been accepted by Trowbridge College in Wiltshire to complete a Foundation course in art and design, she studied Fine Art at John Moores University Liverpool in 1999, and obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree with Honours in 2002.
As well as depicting the landscape as she sees it, Ursula is also interested in delving into the world of surrealism, and often brings elements from dreams and other realms to the forefront.
The use of bold colours enables Ursula to fuse expressionism with realism, resulting in a unique interpretation of her local surroundings. Her preferred medium is oil paint because of its versatility - the buttery consistency allowing a variety of textures to be achieved through the use of different brushstrokes.
Ursula is a self confessed fitness fanatic when not slaving over a hot canvas, and brings her passion for working out into her paintings with vibrant, powerful expression of movement.
