Laural Retz


I’m a Melbourne based artist who loves to paint birds, animals, flowers and the female form. Most of my paintings are quirky and slightly surreal because I believe art should make us smile and feel good.

About Laural Retz

Hello and welcome!

I grew up in the bush of Warrandyte in outer Melbourne which in the 70’s and 80’s was a heavily art-centric community.  It was the perfect place to nurture my passion for art, wildlife and the natural environment, which has had a great impact upon what inspires my art today.  Having drawn and painted since I was a small child, my subjects then included insects, budgies and horses.  I admit that not much has changed, however in my 20’s I also developed a talent for life drawing and hence the female form features frequently in my work.

With a style that is colourful and bold, my paintings reflect my moods and thoughts.  Most of my work is slightly quirky and a little surreal because I believe art should make us smile and feel good.

I achieved a Visual Arts Diploma from the Cooloola Sunshine Institute of Tafe in Noosaville in 2001 and since then have sold my paintings to art enthusiasts from all over the world. I’ve lived in a number of beautiful parts of the world like Noosa Heads, Goa and the Philippines which I’m sure have all imparted their own unique influences upon my art.

Enjoy my art and have a great day!
