Lara’s Arts Practice, explores mixed media painting and drawing, sculpture, printmaking, digital media and textiles. Her work is produced in an Abstract Expressionist style that investigates developed experimental techniques and processes.

“I am intrigued by the energies and complexities of human relationships including nurture, love, belief, communication and the complexity, undercurrents and agendas within these emotive states.”

“I endeavour to give each line and mark vibrancy, energy, motion, mystery and emotion that the viewer can experience.”

After many years working in the Cultural Sector, Lara now lives and works full time on her arts practice within her vibrant Balmain Gallery & Studio.

Employed for many years as the Education Officer and Arts Administration at the Western Plains Cultural Center & Dubbo Regional Gallery, Lara shares a wealth of knowledge and experience in the arts industry.
