Southern California Illustrator Lara Odell employs painting, drawing, cut-out paper collage and animation to “address the ephemerality that defines consciousness and the awkwardness of performance anxiety”.
Lara’s mother, when asked to describe herself, chose the word “effervescent,” and her paternal grandmother, when asked what she would like to be reincarnated as, said simply “a summer breeze.” So she “comes from a lineage of jaunty ladies, on both sides”.
Lara has art degrees from Alfred University, SUNY Buffalo and UC Irvine, and lives in Southern California.
