I'm Lara, I love to use unwanted, unloved items and repurpose them into art. My current creative fascination is painting second hand ceramics, unloved teapots, plates, vases and anything else that speaks to me. When I am not busy with ceramics I also have a passion for abstract drawing, illustrative portraiture and mixed media pieces. Often, I create portraits of people who inspire me, or wildlife that I particularly love. Being creative is engrained within me, it feels more like a need than an option. Being able to share my work with you all is an extra special part of my creative journey.
