{{subst:Quick infobox|Mary, Afterwards Mrs. Kearse Lawrance|||}} Mary, afterwards Mrs. Kearse Lawrance (fl. 1794–1830), flower-painter, first appears as an exhibitor at the Royal Academy in 1795 with a flower-piece. She married Mr. Kearse in 1818, but up to 1830 she continued to exhibit studies of flowers, which were finely executed. During the years 1796 to 1799 she published a series of plates illustrating 'The Various Kinds of Roses cultivated in England'. drawn from nature, which are more remarkable for the beauty of their execution than for their botanical accuracy.
