Ron Lawson is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s most original and distinctive contemporary landscape painters. His unique and instantly recognisable style has been met with an extraordinary response throughout the UK and abroad, where his works of the Scottish Islands and Highlands are enthusiastically collected.

Born in 1960, Ron spent his early years growing up on a farm in Midlothian, Scotland before his career took him to the art studio of publisher DC Thomson in Dundee where he progressively developed the dynamic and highly individual palette and technique that is central to his art works today. In 2010 after 35 years, Ron left his career to concentrate fully on his work as a professional artist.

With a passion for dramatic and sparsely populated locations, Lawson has spent many years exploring and capturing the wild remoteness and majesty of the Outer Hebrides and Scottish Highlands. His paintings depict the scenery of Skye, North and South Uist, Barra, Mull, Tiree, Ulva and many more.

His remarkable, contemporary Scottish landscapes appeal to an international audience, and are included in private collections worldwide. Ron exhibits regularly in Scotland, London and New York.
