Welcome to my world of sustainable creativity at Lara Dee Artistry. I am the artist and owner, and I'm thrilled to share my unique creative process with you.
Unleashing Art from Fabric
Every garment I touch is a blank canvas, waiting to become a wearable masterpiece. I don't just see clothing; I see the potential for captivating art. Through techniques like dyeing, painting, bookmaking, and sewing, I transform second-hand garments into one-of-a-kind creations that defy conventional fashion norms.
Sustainability is at the core of my work. When a garment doesn't find a new home, my creativity takes another captivating turn. Unwanted clothing is reborn as beautiful book covers for art journals, meticulously crafted from leftover scraps of paper, boxes, old books, and more. I promise that every inch of fabric is valued, and nothing goes to waste.
Fabric Scraps to Handmade Paper
My creativity doesn't stop at clothing. By blending fabric scraps and paper, I craft exquisite handmade paper, celebrating the beauty hidden within what some might discard as waste. My commitment is simple: Every piece of the garment donated to me finds a purpose in my sustainable artistry.
My expertise extends beyond fashion. I harness transformed garments to create unique book cloth, using my bookmaking skills to craft stunning covers for journals and notebooks. Each journal tells a story of transformation, just like the garments they're made from.
My creative journey knows no bounds. Through sewing, I craft bookmarks, purses, and more. Sublimation and transfers allow me to cover chairs, coasters, and various items with leftover fabric. Every product I create is a testament to the limitless possibilities of sustainable fashion.
