Doug Lawler
oakland, California

Doug Lawler’s paintings are described as “full of pathos, without becoming caricatures.” His skill with portraiture is a testament to his worldly travels. His style, while intricate, hinges on the primitive nature of native art. He highlights the complexities of individuality with haunting takes on culture.

Hello Doug, I just purchased your fancy lady for my sister in law's 50th birthday, and wanted to have your description with it, when i went back to copy it, it is no longer available, could you possible email me with it at penny.malina@gmail.com i love your work!

Doug Lawler 12/15/2012 | 3:48 PM

People often ask me about how to display my Oil Pastels on Paper. I like using non-glare glass and a simple spacer to separate the artwork from the glass. Floating the piece in a simple frame allows the art to jump out at you!
