The “Lawes” of Wildlife Art
The CBA is excited to announce a new partnership with world renowned wildlife artist Bruce K. Lawes.
With precision and a dedicated passion, Bruce K. Lawes is a Canadian artist who creates works of art in oil. Lawes’ work can be found in multiple prestigious museums and auction houses. He also has paintings displayed in some of the top galleries in the U.S. Lawes has worked with organizations that protect and cultivate new opportunities for all life in our natural world. With that end goal always in mind, he enjoys his continuous relationship with Dr. Jane Goodall in her renowned efforts. It is this personal desire to use his talents to give back to worthy causes that has led him to the Canadian Bison Association (CBA). The mandate of the CBA is to help repopulate the massive herds that once thundered across North America using good practices to create genetically healthy bison. Lawes says, “My first introduction to the association was meeting Brian and Michelle Arnold of Thunder Ridge Bison in Uxbridge, Ontario. They generously allowed me to take reference photos for my work. If it were not for the Arnolds, it would make it much more difficult to create significant and impactful paintings.” Lawes’ inspiration to paint bison came about by being immersed in the southwestern culture where many of his galleries are situated in the United States. Also, seeing the bison roam on the plains in Wyoming where he has traveled hundreds of miles through Yellowstone Park evoked such excitement which incidentally transferred into his painting, ‘My Protector’. “With each of my paintings, moving forward, I hope that you can continue to enjoy my experiences of the great bison.” Bruce Lawes will be creating an ever growing collection of limited-edition prints of which Bruce is generously donating the proceeds to the Canadian Bison Association.
