Lara was born in London in 1994. From Wiltshire, England. Graduated with a painting diploma from The Barcelona Academy Of Art in 2019. After completing an Art and Design Foundation Course Lara spent two years at Charles H Cecil Studios in Florence, Italy. Here she studied portraiture learning the disciplined ‘Sight Size’ technique. She then spent three years at The Barcelona Academy Of Art exploring still life, landscape, figurative and portraiture. A deep knowledge and practice of the essential principles handed down from the past, allows her freedom to express and develop, combining her own style into her academic training.
Lara is currently exploring other techniques looking to pursue her personal work towards the contemporary art world. Having spent the summer of 2018 at The Slade School Of Fine Art she has taken particular interest in researching the idea of impression through concept and composition. Producing work that is clearly thought out, taking decisions on representation and enhancing the best and most interesting way to reflect the subject matter is key to Lara’s own practice.
