Lawrence describes her work, “implementing a fantasy-like feel to create flamboyant, conspicuous and stimulating images. I capture and present my subjects as metaphorical statements rather than still subjects, and each portrait tells a playful story”.

“Stoke-on-Trent City Centre BID are delighted to be financially backing the Adina Lawrence Exhibition via our Create Fund initiative. Supporting Arts & Culture in the city centre is an integral part of the BID’s work in Stoke-on-Trent. Urban Wilderness is known for its cutting-edge creative output, and this is yet another example of their truly excellent work.”

Richard Buxton, of Business Improvement District in Stoke-onTrent
