Rozlynn Lawrence (b. 1958) a contemporary orientalist painter specialising in Oriental and Mediterranean scenes in detailed watercolour, oils and acrylics, known for her orientalist works. [1]


Rozlynn Lawrence born in Shoreditch, London where she grew up as a child in the 1960s. A self-taught artist, drawing from childhood showing an early aptitude at school for drawing and painting that was where her competency came from. She is known for her orientalist subjects which form a major part of her works. She developed her art by working in watercolours before switching to using oil paints in the 1990s. Lawrence’s fascination with the Orient inspired colour saturated scenes of Arabic merchants dressed in rich coloured cloaks and lavishly dressed women in beautiful interiors in what she imagined of historic times in North Africa and the Middle East.

In the 1990s she assisted a local Sunday art club in Islington run by artists for the local community teaching children and adults to draw and paint, providing the opportunity to interact with artists an opportunity of showing and exhibiting her works at the club where members encouraged her painting abilities. Over the years she continued to learn and develop new painting skills and techniques. [2]


Lawrence's works predominantly represent the orientalist era of ancient Middle East, North Africa, Egypt and Turkey, her paintings are richly detailed, vibrant and colourfully populated with exotic opulent scenes such titles as 'Pouring Tea',[3] 'Evening on the Nile' and 'A Rug Merchant in North Africa'. In the early 1980's she became strongly influenced by the orientalist movement, by artists such as Frederick Arthur Bridgman, Charles Robertson, Giulio Rosati and Antonio Gargiullo that she painted and reproduced a series of watercolours for her own personal enjoyment. She sketched and painted several imaginary pictures such as 'Girls by the Harem Bath', 'Rug Merchant at the Souk', 'Cairo Street with Rug Merchant', and 'Leaving the Oasis'.
