I am a South Africa artist living in Cape Town. After completing my studies as a graphic designer at the University of Stellenbosch I went to London and worked for a design company. In 2010 I started my first company Pink and Posh vinyl wall art, where I explored the world of illustration which translated into vinyl wall art. My illustrated wall art has been used in a variety of Publications and photo shoots including Garden and Home, House and Leisure, Ideas magazine, Home magazine, Fair Lady, Woman and Home and Huis Genoot.
In 2013 I chose to explore my true roots in fine arts and launched a new company under my name “Lara designs”. I combined the edge of graphic design and love of fine art to produce the concept ‘Art on your Couch’. Lara Designs was selected to exhibit at the 2014 Design Indaba as part of the Design World Capitol Initiative.
Each design is hand drawn by me and has been silk screened onto pure cotton fabric, I have chosen to produce scatter cushions from the artworks, but the options are endless. The idea is once the client wants to update their space; the cushions can be framed as ‘works of art’, combining functionality and aesthetics.
Using both aspects of my deisgn and art I am able to offer an interior service to both the home and boutique office market. My aim is to design and supply 'style' to beautify and infect space.
