"I do not write my diary. I paint it."
A secret she finally reveals. As a teenager, Lara found that writing her diary was risky. Using words was scary. Therefore she created her own encoded alphabet to make her script hard to decipher, nearly impossible to hack by strangers, protected and secure.Soon after, she forgot what she created with words so she started experimenting with abstract drawings & forms which later on became her refuge; stories & feelings embedded in abstract and surreal images, only she could read, yet people can still relate to.

“Folding scribbles in the wind, I hope it lands at your doorsteps or else let it find its way into forgetfulness, while I find mine in new travels.”
“I create you, and recreate you, to watch you, to observe you; to protect you… To set you free.”
"Everything is borrowed. Even the moon bathes in the sun’s fire."
