Artwork available for purchase.
Laura White is an Australian realist artist specialising in nature-inspired oil painting. Originally born in Argentina and migrating to Australia as a child, she is now based in Melbourne, Victoria. She studied art in high school, exhibiting at some local galleries on the Mornington Peninsula, but never pursued her artistic interests, instead finding herself at the end of a 25 year career within State Government. Making a massive career change from an office to a studio, it didn’t take long for her to develop her true passion with the paintbrush. Initially self-taught via YouTube, she learned the basics of oil painting and fell in love. Laura has been studying under Mary Petruccelli from Petruccelli Art Studio in Upper Beaconsfield. She paints full time, and tries to squeeze in a few other passions in her day, like cooking and gardening, and of course, family…
Laura’s oil paintings are greatly influenced by her love of food and garden. She practices the ‘flemish’ techniques used by the Dutch masters and uses multiple layering methods and translucent glazes to achieve depth and texture in her paintings. Her main motivation is to portray the inherent beauty she sees in everyday life, capturing colour, light and texture to produce artworks that speak to the senses.
Laura has sold many paintings both internationally and Australia wide. She has a facebook page on which she shares a bit of her day with her followers, as well as an Instagram site, which is also a bit of fun.
