Hello, I'm Lara Dee, a born artist, creator at heart, and a driving force behind Lara Dee Artistry. With a rich tapestry of experiences and a boundless passion for creativity, I created Lara Dee Artistry to combine the five things I am passionate about: art, fashion, graphic design, music and thrifting!
I specialize in upcycling second hand clothing by dying, painting, bookmaking and sewing methods. I then offer the items for sale and if the item does not sell, I will recycle it into a beautiful book cover for art journals which are made from leftover scraps of paper, boxes, old books, etc. I also will recycle it into handmade paper, bookmarks, coasters, keychains, labels and many more items.
My art is my voice, a means to face issues, express myself, and connect with others. Lara Dee Artistry is my journey of self-expression, influenced by artists like Barbara Kruger, Tiff Manuel, Aaliyah, and the enduring spirit of hip hop. It's my canvas for self-expression and a path to discovering who I truly am. Through my artistry, I aim to inspire your inner creativity and empower you to embrace your uniqueness with confidence.
