Lara’s paintings depict dreamy still-life imagery painted in a soft, muted palette. She primarily works in oil and graphite, and occasionally loves incorporating fabric, thread and collage mixed media. From ocean swimmers to swaying palm trees, Felsing’s paintings evoke feelings of distant memories and faded photographs.
