Lara grew up in the cozy town of Bracebridge in the heart of Muskoka on a winding country road inhabited by numerous talented and successful artists. Her house was sandwiched between two potters, across the street from a musician, and around the corner from a weaver, glassblower, cabinet maker and a painter. Creative energy flowed and swirled through the air in that neighbourhood and if anyone had the tiniest inkling toward creativity, its influence was nearly too powerful to resist.

Lara’s passion for painting began at a very young age and for the past 18 years she has worked with acrylics on canvas as well as painting wall murals, floor designs and furniture. She sees beauty in nature’s details and is especially inspired by light, colour and water. Lara hopes to delight her audience with a beautiful moment or whimsical scene, caught by her eyes, or conjured up in her imagination and captured through her paintbrush.
