A Southern California native and award-winning artist, Lara has been creating art ever since she first picked up a crayon.
Her degree in English and writing, plus her background in music and theater, make storytelling an integral part of how she expresses herself. Through her art, Lara has continuously striven to teach herself to paint the beautiful stories that she sees in the natural world around her.
Everything Lara paints has a story, as she attempts to convey a captured, crystalized moment snatched out of a dynamic timeline...bird caught preening his feathers, an octopus caught mid-escape, a wild rabbit caught with a mouthful of clover...
Commissioned pieces are a unique opportunity to tell the intimate stories of the people who will own them. Lara loves painting on three-dimensional surfaces, like boxes and stools, and chairs, to find ways to play with the shape of the piece and let it help tell the story.
Lara’s most recent innovation is to take old, worn-out string instruments, and re-imagine them into entirely new creations with epoxy clay and paint - a violin becomes a heron, a guitar becomes a magical blackbird guarding its nest.
What Lara hopes is to show her vision of story and beauty in a way that grabs your attention and makes you smile.
