Lara Scouller is an award winning Scottish artist who works in a variety of media including pastel and printmaking.
Lara has received great acclaim since graduating from Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee in 2006. Prizes awarded for her drawings include: the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy John Kinross Scholarship to Florence in 2006, Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award in 2008, James Torrance Memorial Award presented at the 149th RGI Annual Exhibition in 2010, the Pastel Society Young Artist Award awarded by the London Pastel Society in 2013 and the Seabird Drawing Bursary granted by the Society of Wildlife Artists in 2015. More recently, in 2023, Lara was elected a member of the Royal Glasgow Institute.
Lara's drawings portray the natural world at its most beautiful and vulnerable – working directly from life responding intuitively to her surroundings allows a direct connection to Lara's subject matter. Animals and birds found in Africa, India, and closer to home in Scotland’s landscapes have provided inspiration for her most recent works.
