Demo Artist: Lara Cornell

Demo Artist Lara Cornell, Tuesday August 30, 7:00 PM Banfill Locke
Listening to the whispers, following my dreams, expressing my heart and loving living life as an artist and light keeper.

Lara was born and raised in Northfield, Minnesota. After living, traveling, teaching and studying internationally she graduated with a BA from the University of Minnesota in French language, English literature, and Secondary Education. In 2014, she turned to painting for a creative outlet from the stresses of daily life and the flood gates opened. Lara’s style is Soulful Expressionism; painting bright colors, mixing medias, using original photography, lettering words of love and encouragement, and often focusing around her love of nature.

This past year her artwork has appeared in Alena Hennessy's Intuitive Painting Workshop, in MN Yoga + Life magazine, in Warrior Soul: A Journal To Inspire Your Fiercely Alive Whole Self by Laura Probert, at the Louvre Museum in Paris, at SCOPE 2015 in Miami, and at various juried shows in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Her artwork, yoga mats/blankets, and fair trade jewelry can be found for purchase at gallery shops and yoga studios around the U.S. including the Minneapolis Yoga Center.

Lara teaches collaborative intuitive painting workshops, guides self-care yoga sessions and workshops, offers ayurvedic spa sessions, consults on flower/gem/color essences for adults and children, works with crystal healing, and also performs regular distance Reiki sessions.
