Laurence Saunois is an animal artist.
She works mainly with oil paintings. Her favorite subjects range from dog portraits to big cats and birds. A realistic or even hyper-realistic painter, she strives to retranscribe the emotions that contribute to the beauty of each animal. Working on the textures of the furs, feathers and especially, trying to retranscribe the looks, always essential parts of a painting, allows her to put forward the specific character of each animal.
Self-taught painter, she masters several pictorial techniques: oil painting, acrylic painting, drawing with charcoal, graphite pencil, watercolor, Indian ink, dry pastels, but also scratchboard, a technique she discovered in the United States. She made the drawing with the painter's pen from the beautiful bird, the woodcock, her specificity. She is also a sculptor and realizes her sculptures to order by making custom creations.
Professional painter, she is a member of the Society of Animal Artists in the USA. In 2010, the BBC, in England, awarded her the prize of international artist of the year at the prestigious BBC wildlife Artist of the Year competition. She exhibits in many countries and has received numerous international awards.
Her biggest achievement is a 6 meter long triptych of white doves which she called "Universal Love". She is currently working on a project called "Nymphéus Luminansis" highlighting the water lilies of Claude Monet.


 Where can you buy my Artworks

"By purchasing a work by a living artist you are purchasing a living moment in history, one that has been created to last for generations and will continue to speak and communicate to others in the distant future. By owning a work of art you become a part of the history of that work, (referred to as "provenance" by auction houses, historians and dealers). In a way, owning a painting, drawing or sculpture is its own form of immortality that travels with the work throughout time." Art renewal Center Foundation
