Lawrence (Larry) was born and raised in Madison, IN and much of his youth was spent at the local Boys Club in the arts and craft room. The Clubs art instructor was also the local high school art teacher Lou Knoble and Larry gives both Lou and the Club credit for moving his art ability forward as the club even bought him his first set of oil paints. Though art was something Larry did well it was just fun until Lou informed him that he would be going to art school after graduating from high school.
