Lara Thomas is a practising artist and art educator. She has been exhibiting since 2013 and recently graduated from Elam with a BFA (Hons).
As an artist (and a human), my aim is to make a positive difference in the world by inspiring and supporting others on their creative journeys. I love to create beautiful objects, environments and experiences that add a little something extra to the ordinary.
My practice is based around the natural environment; our relationship with it and ways in which we connect with a place. I’m interested in working sustainably – with natural, found and repurposed materials – to reduce waste and environmental harm. My practice is varied in approach and media; including ceramics, printmaking and interactive sculptural installation.
