Trouble & Strife

Lara is the face behind Trouble and Strife. A local artist based in Christchurch who loves to use unwanted, unloved items and repurpose them into art. Her current creative fascination is painting second hand ceramics, unloved teapots, plates, vases and anything else that speaks to her.
When she is not busy reviving ceramics she enjoys exploring her passion for abstract drawing, illustrative portraiture and mixed media pieces. Often, creating portraits of people who inspire her, or her love of wildlife. Being creative is engrained within her identity and she loves to share her creations with you all and bring joy into your life through her art.
