Lawrence Baird was born in Cairns. Lawrence's mother's family are from Wujal Wujal (Far North Queensland), and his father's family are from Cherbourg.

Lawrence started making artworks in 1998 when his cousin from Cherbourg showed him how to paint landscapes, and in 2002 when his uncle from Wujal Wujal showed him how to do dot painting.

Lawrence uses acrylic on canvas with brush, stick and sponge. Lawrence also does pencil drawings. When he paints, Lawrence feels connected to the country of his people. He remembers living close to the land and river, fishing and hunting for animals.
