Laurence Saunois

- ANIMAL ARTIST BY LOVE  - GENERALIST ARTIST BY CHOICE - SCULPTOR
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.

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

In this video, she opens the doors of her studio to let you discover her artistic universe. She shows you the material she uses: her brushes, palettes, easels, lighting and her small cabinet of curiosities. Then the visit continues with the discovery of her garden which was awarded in 2011 by the Ministry of the Environment in the Ecophyto competition. This contest rewards good gardening practices, ecological and without pesticides, of amateur gardeners passionate about biodiversity. She draws her inspiration from her artist's garden and sometimes discovers her future subjects there. She also paints dogs, cats, horses and wild animals on commission. You can continue this visit by exploring her website. GOOD VISIT!
