Mehl Lawson

Mehl Lawson

Mehl Lawson excels at depicting the devotion between man and his horse   His sculptures, with pure grace and beauty, capture the spirit of the Western buckaroo—the working men of the great California and Nevada ranches. He is an heir to the proud vaquero tradition of Old California and the refined, subtle elegance of the Santa Barbara style.  He is happy to combine the world of horses with that of fine art, and his rawhide braiding artistry.

He has received numerous awards and participated in major shows all over the West.  Mehl is now an Emeritus member of the Cowboy Artists of America.  He was invited to become a member in 1982, after only a few years sculpting, and has received numerous Gold and Silver Medals and Best of Show Awards at the Cowboy Artists of America shows.  He has been presented the Remington Award and the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award at the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.  Mehl was honored with the Thomas Moran Gold Medal in 1998 at the Masters of the American West show at the Autry National Center. In 2001, Mehl became a member of the Traditional Cowboy Arts Association as a braider of rawhide gear. He was named Braider of the Year in 2008 by the Academy of Western Artists.

He and his wife, Martha, reside in Bonita, California.
