Shannon Lawlor is an equine artist who works from the experience of a horsewoman, translating her own history, and what she sees. Equine art with swirling lines of unfurling mane; laying bare the resplendent muscle tone of a wither, or depth of soul behind one of her subjectâ€™s eyes. Her horse art moves beyond breed and discipline, with an appeal that is meant to inspire and enlighten the viewer.
Equine art by Shannon Lawlor can be traced back to her childhood on the prairies where, as a young girl, she was never far from a horse, or pencil. Immersed in the equine environment from toddler through her formative years, Shannonâ€™s intuitive desire to put pencil to paper has been there since before she could spell. She has carried her sketchbook from the prairie of her youth to the finest Arabian breeding farms deep in the heart of Poland.

Her vision resonates with viewers appreciative of the majesty of the horse, from all walks of life. It rings true with a chord of authenticity that appeals to modern discerning collectors. Interior designers often place Shannonâ€™s passionate equine images in commercial and urban settings. Her work lends a cool and modern touch to any room. It gives pause, brings peace, and elevates the soul.
â€œHorses are a part of my breath, an extension of myself. â€
