Inspiration at every turn

Growing up in Balmain, local artist Lara Scolari knows the area better than most. As a child she loved exploring our intricate peninsula on bike.

Lara Scolari GalleryAs an adult she appreciates the sense of community and creative energy. “Balmain exudes creativity”, says Lara. “Whether it’s chefs, florists or visual artists like myself, creatives have always gravitated here and it’s wonderful to see new creative spaces pop up.”

Lara still loves exploring our hidden parks and waterways. “Lately I’ve been enjoying Australian made giftware and homewares made by 20 artists, designers and makers from all over Australia. Peacock Point and the little beach in front of Colgate.” Although our lush peninsula is a constant inspiration, there’s one place Lara is sure to find her creativity – home! “My little house on Beattie Street is my creative space, art studio and gallery. This is where all the magic happens!”
