Hey there cutie,
I’m Lara 

I'm an adventurous Aussie who embarked on an artist journey to the bustling streets of London to becoming a devoted Melbourne mama, and eventually settling in the USA. I'm an artist, podcaster, qualified educator, writer and actor with big dreams and 20 years lived as a career artist.

Obsessed with: flat white coffees, emotionally intelligent communication and making a vibrant, Artist life you don’t have to suffer in.

Steering clear of soul sucking work since the year 2000 .

making an Vibrant Creative life you don’t have to suffer in.

Morning focus routine, cuddles with my adorable children + hottie hubby, flat white coffee, weights and stretching at the gym, and protecting my skin in the sun (that's my main skincare routine)! 

daily rituals

Writing, podcasting, parenting, making meals on repeat, filming, in the acting studio, dancing and singing around the house.


Dishonesty, glamourising artists or their careers, projecting a false self, long emails, and living out of balance.


Emotionally intelligent talk, flat white coffee, short emails, pursuing wholeness, perseverance, scheduling goals & cutting out the 'meh' to make room for the very best.


I did not grow up in an arts hub, but I harboured a dream of thriving in one. Stepping out of my comfort zone, I left behind the familiar to chase that dream. My journey took me to London, where I pursued my passion for performance. That brave leap allowed me to unfurl my wings as an artist, and over time, I honed the art of thriving as a full-time artist, nurturing my body, mind, and spirit. The challenges that came my way became opportunities for growth, and I mastered the art of thriving amidst adversity – a skill I can now guide you in cultivating.

Today, I find myself nestled in the warmth of my own Atlanta, USA home, alongside my wonderful husband and the two children I fervently hoped for – a son and a daughter. I live as a fulfilled career artist while also extending my hand to assist others in forging their own vibrant life and artistic path.

Now, for the formalities: I hold an MA in Musical Theater, a BCA in Dance, a Grad Dip Ed in Dance and Drama, a Cert II in Musical Theater, and I've undergone Acting for Film & TV training from RADA in London.

My joy is helping artists become the best version of themselves while pursuing the kind of life & career they truly want.... one with adventure, purpose and boundless creativity.

I haven't always had this business encompassing online courses, podcasts, and coaching, but my identity as a full-time career artist has remained constant. In fact, in the past, you might have discovered me engaged in teaching acting, overseeing my dance studio, and honing my craft in acting, singing, and dancing across the globe. My endeavours included producing shows and artistic events in both Sydney and London, alongside instructing performing masterclasses in esteemed cities like Paris, Beijing, Sydney, London, and New York.
