Doug Lawler
Oakland, California

Self-taught artist Doug Lawler has been creating since he was a child in Detroit, Michigan. His career as an artist has led him to some interesting places including Hawaii and eventually the Bay Area. “The allure of the 60s brought me to the San Francisco Bay Area,” says Doug. It was at this time he founded a printmaking collective in Berkeley where he designed and printed social justice leaflets and posters. Doug’s current body of work utilizes his printmaking background to present a whimsical and mysterious narrative. Ttitled “The Island of ZA: A Fable Without Words,” the series tells the story of a mythical island in roughly 100 dry-point etchings. Doug’s protagonists are a young girl and a dog who are on a journey steeped in magical encounters. Brimming with fantasy and delightful naivety, the artworks evoke childlike curiosity in viewers of all ages.

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!
