Laura Kroesbergen was born in Brantford, Ontario, Canada and raised as the second youngest in a large family. She was fascinated with horses at a young age and learned to draw them as soon as she learned to write. She continued to draw horses as well as other animals through high school and beyond, always striving to make her artwork as realistic as possible, while also capturing the spirit of the animals she drew.
In 2018, she taught herself to paint with soft pastel, her current medium of choice, and continues to strive to improve her skills in hyperrealism.
Laura is an emerging artist and beginning in 2022 has been able to participate in several art shows. 2022 was also the first year she has been able to pursue her artwork full time and she is eager to share her unique perspectives with the world. She currently resides on a small farm in Hamilton, Ontario, where she is surrounded and inspired by the beauty of the world around her.
