Green Hills – Acrylic on canvas – Laural Lawless

Laural Lawless is a Northeast Victorian artist. In the last decade Laural’s lifelong passion for painting has become a full time pursuit. She has exhibited both locally and interstate, in both group and solo exhibitions.

Our spiritual land

Laural loves to create art works that evoke an emotional response from the viewer. She endeavours to capture the essence of our vast, beautiful and spiritual land in acrylics on canvas.

Laural’s love for the Australian landscape developed many years ago when her family owned and operated an outback hotel in Tibooburra, NSW. Her approach fits within both the contemporary and impressionist genres. Laural paints with spontaneity and tries to retain a brilliance of colour and texture. Her medium of choice is acrylic as she likes to paint rapidly and with enthusiasm.
