Lawrence Jenkins was born in Sevenoaks, Kent in 1944 and named after his uncle Lawrence, whose name is on the War Memorial that overlooking the Vine, Sevenoaks. From the Vine there is an ever changing view of  the North Downs. The area south of the Downs has provided inspiration and a foundation for the art work produced by Lawrence. Since his marriage the area of France where his wife spent her childhood has lead to inspiration for oils, watercolours, and etchings. The exploration of the landscapes that have been the beginning of their lives gives Lawrence's landscapes a special significants. He sees the landscape as the birthright he treasures most.

The Etching Studio. Inspired by the teaching of David Hockney at Maidstone Art College, Lawrence spent his second year as a student at the Royal Academy Schools producing his first suit of etchings. He has continued to produce prints evers since.

In 1986 he bought an etching press to edition prints for himself and other artists. After teaching the post graduate students at the Royal Academy Schools for 27 years he has a wealth of experience to pass on to other artists. He runs classes for artist who want to make intaglio prints in his studio in Kent, at Tunbridge Wells Adult Education Center and at the Prince's Drawing School, Shoreditch, London.
