is an interdisciplinary artist, thinker & restless soul based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Fascinated by the fragility of life and the feminine, her fine art practice and personal work responds to notions of spirituality and mortality in a often poetical and idealised approach. The core concept that our earthly existence is ephemeral and temporary is what sets the framework of her enquiry.
Lara completed her bachelor degree in 2013 and been admitted on the Dean's rolls of Excellence for the same year. She completed a Video and E-Media course in Sydney, Australia at the Sydney Institute Film Academy in 2017.
Her work has been exhibited in Australia, Italy, and the UK.
" I have quite an obsession with the inextricable connection of life and death. I want my work to engage the viewers with their own sense of mortality, the ephemeral of our worldly existence and the vulnerability of the body."
