The seed of an artist was sown when at age six den Hertog’s Dutch parents took her to see the art museums of the Netherlands. Growing up in an eclectic household where everyone was always doing something creative and where craftsmanship, ingenuity and skill were supreme, is it any wonder that she gravitated towards time honored painting techniques. Laura studied commercial art at Dawson College in Montreal and spent her early years working in illustration and design. While this prevented “Starving artist syndrome” it did not allow her to create the kind of magic inherent in traditional paintings. Laura now puts her considerable energy into creating paintings where past meets present, where people and things are timeless and the land is pristine.
