Born in 1968, Lara spent her childhood in Beirut and started her artistic studies in ALBA Beirut before continuing in Paris art schools (Académie Charpentier, École Boulle and ENSAAMA also called Atelier de Serres). She has studied murals (Fresco, Laquer, Mosaic) in ENSAAMA and traditional religious icon making in Ateliers de la Mairie de Paris. She then started a major in Chinese language and civilization before settling in China for 15 years, during which she studied for 7 years Chinese traditional painting and calligraphy, as well as Japanese floral art Ikebana for which she’s got certificates from Kyoto Ikebana School.Lara is very interested in artistic techniques and her works are a mix of these and of different influences, Asian, Lebanese and western. She has exhibited in China (group exhibitions) and her first exhibition in Lebanon was held in August 2010, a year after settling back in her country. Since then she exhibits twice to four times a year. Her works were first mostly influenced by women and Asia. But since her return to the country and being shocked by the huge, fast and chaotic changes of Beirut, she started to work on that theme.
