Laura Landers was born and raised in Noranda, Quebec. One of my main interests even as a child was drawing and painting everything I could. In high school I drew my classmates' and teachers' portraits and took my first art class after school with Noranda artist Gwen Cameron. After I married in 1970, I continued to draw and to supply teach arts and crafts in a local school.

In 1978 our family moved to Espanola, Ontario. The breathtaking mountain range of LaCloche, Manitoulin Island and the North Shore struck a chord with me. I became involved with the annual LaCloche Art Show and have exhibited my work with them for thirty years and recently was given the title of Distinguished Artist. As well, the Willisville Mountain Project was to raise awareness of the potential quarrying of this particular LaCloche mountain where many members of the Group of Seven created their most important works.

In 1981 we moved to Timmins where I became a member of the Porcupine Art Club and the Northern Ontario Artist Association. Moving to Haileybury, Ontario in 1984 I began a career in custom framing out of our home called Laura's Art Shoppe. At this point I developed the Slices of Temiskaming series. Soon my series expanded to over 70 art pieces and unlimited edition giclée prints.

I moved my frame shop into Canvas and Clay in New Liskeard, owned by Carolyn Campsall. Being a member of the local art club and with my N.O.A.A. affiliation was a great way for Carolyn and myself to tap in to the prolific artist network in this region. I have taught numerous workshops for adults and children both privately and through the Temiskaming Art Gallery, the local schools and art clubs. In 2011 Laura's Art Shoppe moved to its current location on Silver Street in Cobalt. These have been the most rewarding years of my life.

Because of my family and wonderful friends who encourage me throughout the bad times and praise me throughout the good, I have the confidence to grow as an artist who revels in the world around me and the people in it.
