About the Artist:
Lara Zakk was born and raised in Northern New Jersey. Right from the age of 3 or 4 she was into art. Always drawing, painting and being creative overall, she decided to study Painting in College. So she headed off to live in Florence, Italy to study at Lorenzo De'Medici (School of Art) for a semester. Here she was able to travel all over Europe which influenced her style along with working in NYC after graduating from Montclair State University with a BA. After becoming a Director of Art Galleries, she decided to open her own business but never lost the urge and passion to keep creating. Painting murals, drawing, working on oil paintings, photography, etc. will always be something that she has to do for herself. It gives her peace and keeps her mind constantly moving forward.
There have been many artists/mentors in her life that she has looked up to for inspiration and has learned from, along with the Masters.
Making something from nothing and creating beautiful things to surround her everyday life brings her joy.
