Heather Lara is a California-based artist who creates amazingly realistic animal paintings that every animal lover would like to have on their wall. Lara uses a variety of techniques but is most famous for her scratchboard works.
Lara has been connected to the animal world since her early life, studying Biology, volunteering with Animal Department at the Living Desert, and helping abandoned and endangered animals through various organizations. Through her work with animals, she started gaining interest in art and decided to pursue the calling of an artist.
Lara’s art career, however, remained connected with the animals, as they are the primary subjects of her works.
Thanks to her familiarity with the animal world and wildlife, Lara creates highly detailed and realistic portraits of tigers, lions, flamingos, and various other animal species. This brought her significant popularity in the art world, and her artworks have made it to galleries all around the world.
