About me

Image_About_meWelcome! Bienvenidos!

I am an artist in the making, enjoying the process very much and becoming more serious about art every day. My main training was as a biologist. I discovered art in 2005 while taking a drawing course at TAFE and in 2014  decided to quit my job and become a full time artist. I live in North Queensland, Australia

I work in a variety of media with lots of printmaking, drawing, and other media.  The human figure and its social environment is a recurrent topic in my work, but I am also very attracted to the beauty of nature, so a combination of these two themes gives me a nice balance. Within printmaking I mainly work with relief methods (woodcut and linocut) but I am quickly expanding to include other media.

This website shows my work and my studio blog. I post more frequently showing works in progress and more recent works in facebook and Instagram (see details below).

I also have an Etsy shop for some smaller works produced in larger editions LauraCastellArt (currently on a break!)

  1. I am currently staying in Townsville and saw an article about you in ‘Duo Magazine’. I very much like your work and was wondering if it were possible to see some of it.

    1. Hi Judith,
      Many thanks for your interest. I don’t have work in galleries at the moment, just at home. You are very welcome to visit if you like.
      Let me know and I will give you the address and my contact number.
      Kind regards, Laura
