Lara Smith

Lara Smith is a predominantly self-taught artist based in Cardiff. Working mainly in oil with a palette knife, Lara’s artwork features bold, expressive strokes which aim to capture the atmosphere of her subject. With a love for the sea, Lara takes a lot of her inspiration for her work from the Welsh and Cornish coastline.

Her work has been displayed at numerous galleries across the UK including the Mall Galleries, the Turner Contemporary and most recently the Albany Gallery. Lara’s portfolio includes both studio and ‘en plein air’ works. “I love painting out in the open – it allows me to completely immerse myself into the surroundings and capture the atmosphere in the painting”.
