Artsy Gifts for the Holidays from Artist Lara Lenhoff

Lara Lenhoff is a South African-born artist living in Clearwater, Florida, in fact the colors in her artwork are an homage to her country of birth. Lara began her art career in early 2014 exhibiting work at The Misfit Gallery in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas, Texas. Being embraced by a curator there, Lara was inspired to create an abundance of art. 


“I’ve painted every day and night since then. Teaching myself how to utilize palette knives, I would spend hours incorporating the style while listening to music. Embarking on a creative journey with this style has led me to where I am today. I have found healing and effective coping strategies through the utilization of creative expression.” She recently became a resident artist with St. Pete ArtWorks Gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida and is also part of the Gulf Coast Artists' Alliance.

The artist is a philanthropist as well, fundraising for meaningful events, special projects and organizations. Her company Artsy Monkey provides opportunities to local and emerging artists to exhibit their work. Focusing on the concept of community engagement and being of service to those in need has given Lara tremendous fulfillment.

Lara creates custom artwork and art merchandise, her popular limited-edition soy candles feature art images from the early years of her work. They are excellent quality and can burn for several hours, leaving a lovely scent that will fill the room. Each candle has a unique image on it and they are available in either black or white glass, beautifully boxed and ready to give as a gift or keep for yourself. Visit Lara's online store:
