Lara first learnt Italic writing at the age of 5. It was her primary school's pen of choice, and she has continued to use one ever since.

 She has a Fine Art BA in Decorative Art and originally worked as a gilder and muralist. She has developed her own free-style of calligraphic/italic writing and has been working for event companies and private clients for the last 15 years.

Her calligraphy commissions have included:
  • weddings
  • private parties
  • corporate events
  • degree certificates
  • film festivals 
  • charity events.
The majority of the calligraphy work is done at home, however  
Lara is available to work onsite with prior arrangement.

 Any combination of ink colour and stationary is generally possible including gold and silver. The stationary is usually supplied by the client but with prior notice Lara can arrange for stationary quotations.
