Painted in the spring of 2020 in De Haan, Belgium, this hidden forest staircase captures a sense of enchantment that I felt at the abundance of colour and natural composition I would often come across during my daily walks. I was struck by the pop of the small white flowers against an aged wooden fence and the curve of the staircase, which leads the eye up and ever so slightly to the left. The large flat stones look as if they are protruding naturally from the earth. The light coming through the trees gives a sense of a secret garden…or forest!

This painting comes in a contemporary, white-painted wooden floating frame including a hook on the back.

Laura K. Smith (1989) is a Canadian landscape painter based in Brussels, Belgium. Inspired from a young age by the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art movements, Laura studied studio fine arts, art history, art theory, and philosophy for over a decade and is now pursuing her own painting practice professionally.

Laura holds a Ph.D. in Literature from KU Leuven (Belgium), a Master’s degree in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmith’s, University of London (UK), and a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Fine Arts with honours in Art History from Bishop’s University (Canada). Laura has worked in academia as a post-doctoral researcher and as an art consultant, gallery assistant, and researcher including in internationally renowned art institutions in Europe and Canada.

Peaceful, joyful, strong, colourful, dream-like, and haunting are some of the ways in which Laura’s paintings have been described to her. Using acrylic on canvas, Laura paints colourful landscape scenes of her home country of Canada and her new home country of Belgium with the aim of sharing the joy that she experiences in the practice and appreciation of art. Complementary to her painting practice, Laura writes about her painting process and inspiration in her biweekly blog, available on her website.
