Laurence Saunois, artist

Self-taught, my love of art and passion for discovery gave rise to what I am today: an artist.

An artist who wants to constantly evolving, as indeed the world that surrounds and simply try, in her creations, to remember that what is more beautiful and more just. My path is often fraught with doubts, hopes, failures or successes. 

Create brings me much joy but it is nothing compared to the joy of giving happiness and emotions. 

Because art is above all this: to provoke emotions.

I was born in 1966 near Paris, as far back as I can remember, I have always loved drawing. At the age of 9, I started learning to ride. As soon as I had a pencil in my hand, I would draw horses. As a teenager, I admired painters like Ingres, Géricault........ I often went to the Louvre Museum in Paris to admire 18th and 19th century paintings.
I am completely self-taught. I never learned to draw or took classes. I use all pictorial techniques but I prefer oil painting. I discovered the use of colour and pigments at the age of 28. I painted landscapes and portraits. I liked to create an atmosphere and play with light and shade.
Through each painting made, there is a story, one or more people met. There is also a photographic work since I work mainly according to my pictures. How to succeed in having the right posture, the right attitude, the right look..... most often with patience. The animal is a living being and it is necessary to know how to deal with its mood and character. I like to photograph nature and of course animals for all that it has to offer. With them, we keep learning. All animals are beautiful and I love them all. It's my great passion.


The Society of Animal Artists is a membership organization that produces the finest animal art in the world. SAA's mission is to promote excellence in the representation of domestic and wild animals in art. The artwork created by SAA members has set new standards of excellence in the fine arts. The SAA's annual exhibition and its traveling exhibition, "Art and the Animal," have become the standard by which all others are measured.(Society of Animal Artists)


The International Guild of Realism aims to promote realist and hyperrealist art and to build bridges between today's best artists and international collectors.


"True masters of the visual arts, they train and inspire the next generation of artists, researchers and teachers to protect, preserve and perpetuate traditional techniques with 21st century subjects". (Extrait du site de l'Art Renewal Center)
