I create a unique and personalized artwork for your space
A beloved photograph as artistic inspiration
Do you have a beloved photograph stored on your computer under “travel photos” or the like, the subject of which you’d love to showcase in your space as a painting?
I often work from my own reference photos as they can act as a starting place. My emphasis lies on the creative interpretation of colour, form, and feeling. Commission work calls for a marriage of my style and interpretation and your feelings for a specific subject. Read more on how I work here.
An individualized theme, idea, and colour palette
Perhaps you like my style but haven’t found an item in my web shop that works for your space?

“Joyful Blossoms”, 2022
This painting (acrylic on canvas, 100 x 80 cm/39 x 31 in.) is the result of a desired theme, based on a memory: a trip to England. The collector provided me with a few photographs of bright blossoms in springtime. I used these images as a starting point. We discussed colour palette and mood: bright and joyful!
“Blue Sunset”, 2020
This painting (acrylic on canvas, 70 x 50 cm/27.6 x 19.7 in.) is an example of a commissioned artwork based on an individualized theme. The customer had a theme and colour palette in mind initially. We discussed this as well as the mood and size that would fit the destination space. I write about this experience working on commission in one of my blog posts.
“Laura’s painting transforms my office into a very homely space. I sent her some photos that I took in England of scenes reminding me of spring. We talked a lot about colours and the feelings they provoke in me.
Since I’m not a big fan of too much blue, for instance, Laura added warm yellow shades to the sky, which reminds me of those first sunny days in March that I love so much.
I loved the process almost as much as I love the painting, since we really took our time, and I didn’t feel rushed to take quick decisions. This will definitely not be my last ‘Laura Smith’!“

“A few months ago I commissioned a painting from Laura. It was my first time commissioning an artwork, so you can imagine I was a bit nervous about the process.
Laura did such a tremendous job of guiding me through the process. She gave great suggestions on colours and themes that would suit the space designated for the painting, which was much appreciated by the art newbie that I am.
And, most importantly, I absolutely love the painting she made! Her sea landscape has been up on my wall for a few months now, and I am still in love with its colours. In the end she perfectly captured the ‘vibe’ I was going for.”
— Juno, Brussels.
