Mehl Lawson is a leading artist of western or cowboy art. He is an active member of The Cowboy Artist of America, a group of artists dedicated to preserving in art the cowboy life style. Before sculpting the horse and cowboy art works he was well known as a horse trainer. Mehl and his family make their home in Bonita California. Where you can always find him creating new pieces through out the year. Mehl Lawson is an artist in three mediums – sculpture, braiding and horses. He is an heir to the proud vaquero tradition of Old California—a dedicated disciple of the refined, subtle elegance of the Santa Barbara style that inspired the creative spirits of such men as Ed Borein and Luis Ortega. There is the same kind of magic in the hands that shape the sculptor’s clay as there is in the hands that hold the reins of a spade-bit horse. Mehl is accomplished in both venues and brings to each a concentrated focus that produces horseback memories and sculptural images of pure grace and beauty.
