Artist Bio

Laura White is an Australian realist artist specialising in still life and nature inspired oil paintings.   Her love for both ceramics and the garden greatly influences the realist and botanical subject matters which she prefers. Using multiple layering methods and translucent glazes to achieve depth and texture in her work, she is constantly applying the rules of balance, tone and texture to her paintings.  The carefully chosen objects are placed in compositions in such a way that together they almost become one. By keeping compositions relatively sparse, the subjects are given breathing space, emphasising their beauty, even when the object is a ginger jar or a battered enamel pitcher.

​White paints full time from her studio in Berwick, providing work to exhibit both locally and interstate with subsequent sales being made both within Australia and internationally.  She is a prolific artist, having held 8 solo exhibitions, as well as being involved in 48 select group exhibitions, all in the last 6 years since she commenced painting.

​“Since starting to paint, I find myself “looking” at things with a greater intensity; truly looking at the colours, textures, contrasts, reflections and hues. I hope that by capturing this, I force the individual to stop and take a minute to see things through my eyes.  This is what I strive to share with my viewer.”

Laura White is represented by 19Karen Contemporary Artspace,(Gold Coast)  The Moree Gallery (Moree) and Art to Art (Melbourne)
