Lara Odell
Lara Odell is an artist and illustrator. Born in Long Beach, CA in 1971, one of her earliest pieces is a drawing of ballerinas peeing at a recital. Over the years her aesthetic has become more refined, for better or worse, but it has kept her inherent sense of humor, pathos and the absurd.

Through painting, drawing, cut paper and animation, her work often addresses the ephemerality that defines consciousness and the awkwardness of performance anxiety. She has also worked extensively with printmaking and video, and is interested in woodcut printing, stop-motion animation, and writing.

She has art degrees from Alfred University, SUNY Buffalo and UC Irvine, and lives in Southern California.
