Lara Kaye

A self-taught and full-time visual artist, Lara Kaye learns by reading, observing, and practicing.

To her, nature and creativity are magnificent gifts of the Creator, who is the original Artist; and she enjoys capturing and sharing beauty, design, and diversity.

Although her interest in art and photography has steadily increased over three decades since childhood, in August 2021, through macro photography, she started out on her journey to becoming an independent artist.

Soon after, Lara discovered that she enjoys turning her photos into digital artworks through artistic editing techniques.

The South African born artist now also produces mixed media pieces by digitally enhancing or altering some of her drawings and paintings.

In December 2021, Lara began to look into more traditional means of creating art - drawing with ink, graphite or watercolour pencils, and painting with watercolours.

The artist hopes that you will find a piece among her work that will help to speak to the heart, comfort, or bring joy.

My mini portfolio

Just one image of each category of art I make.

Shoes “Shoes”

Title derived from the saying "Put yourself in their shoes."

Gracefully Ageing “Gracefully Ageing”

The lines, spots, and wrinkles caused by ageing can add charm.

Yellow Flower “Yellow Flower”

This image of wild flowers is a favourite among viewers.

Rose “Rose”

The piece means a lot to me, because it is an example of how you can still achieve something good regardless of your circumstances if you will put your trust in God.
