To be legendary. To live without boundaries, without labels and to just be me.
Bleached out is a collection of upcycled and made to order pieces that are hand-painted with bleach, using various painting techniques and tools.
Bleach, textiles, screen-printing, heat transfer vinyl, fabric paint, acrylic paint, photography and other mixed media.
Every purchase helps support recycling textiles and will not contribute to the tons of waste already in the U.S. Each piece is unique and reworked/altered in Florida using bleach dye/painting techniques, from recycled clothing sourced in the USA.
All pieces were selected from either my closet, second-hand boutiques, thrift stores or were donated and are all hand painted by love by Lara Dee.
Hi I am Lara Dee. I am a born artist, creator at heart, schooled graphic designer and photographer and a professional visual identity coach.
(Side note: I am against labels but realize I have to say something that will paint the picture of who I am and what I do, but if you really want to get to know me > Drop Me a Line Here)
Raised and schooled in Ohio, became an entrepreneur in Chicago, lived freely while working in fashion in Los Angeles and am now based in St. Petersburg, Florida, I am just being me…an artist who loves creating in all mediums.
I still travel and have clients in Ohio, Chicago and LA! So let me know if you are in the area and want to grab a coffee! (Virtual coffee that is)
