Laura Thompson

Laura began her career in the beautiful Niagara region of Ontario. In 2010 she moved to Florence, Italy with her partner,Frank, where they now have a studio in the historic centre of Florence.  Laura is an alumni of The Florence Academy of Art and it is the academic training from life in the traditional methods and techniques which has provided a solid foundation for the development of her work.  Her work can be found in both public and private collections throughout Canada, USA, Italy, Germany and Spain.  Laura enjoys painting all subjects in a diversity of style.  Due to Laura's reputation as a wonderful tutor as well as an artist, Laura is very much in demand.  Their studio, which has now expanded to two more floors, is booked up for workshops more than a year in advance.  


"I had a fantastic time! The group was great and Frank and Laura are lovely people. I learnt a huge amount and will definitely come again" - Annette - Florence April 2019 


"I just wanted you to know that the holiday was excellent.  I think this was because it was obviously in a lovely place, but was in a proper studio with Laura as a properly qualified professional tutor.  We all got on well together and had a great time. I feel I have learnt a lot. So thank you for organising it". Carol - Florence April 2019
