T. Allen Lawson


With an eye for subtle beauty and a dedication to continual study, T. Allen Lawson works and paints in the tradition of earlier representational artists. His paintings, drawings and etchings are consistently evolving expressions of the artist and his surroundings.

Tim formally studied portraiture and figure drawing at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Connecticut.

His work is part of the permanent collections of the Denver Art Museum, the Yale University Art Gallery, the Portland Museum of Art, the Whitney Gallery of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, the Florence Griswold Museum and the Farnsworth Art Museum. In 2008, T. Allen Lawson was chosen to create the White House Christmas card. The painting is now a part of the White House permanent art collection.
