Artist Bio & CV

b. 1968 Argentina

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 colour to her paintings.    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, Victoria.  She is a prolific artist, having held 12 solo exhibitions, as well as being involved in 55 select group exhibitions, all in the last 6 years since she commenced painting.

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

She also has works available at galleries throughout Australia -

​“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.
