Lara is a happy little artist, especially surrounded by craft supplies and compelled by an idea or opportunity. She spends her time creating magic in all its colorful forms, dancing in the kitchen, singing in the shower, and laughing out loud. She is the mother of five children and a growing number of grandchildren and fur/scale/feather babies. Her creative energy began in the salty beach air of Southern California. Now, she enjoys the vibrant sunsets of Arizona with her high school sweetheart and love of her life. Lara is determined to follow her heart in all her artistic endeavors, never grow old, wear her cheerful overalls to make her friends smile, and allow her childlike spirit to soar.
