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.
WELCOME TO THE ARTISTIC AND BOTANICAL UNIVERSE of Laurence Saunois, animal artist
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.
