Lara-Shychoski's Profile Picture
Lara Shychoski
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Lara Strilisky is a freelance artist/illustrator living and working in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada. She was born (1980) in central Saskatchewan and has lived in British Columbia, Montana, South Dakota, Utah and England before settling in the midst of the Alberta badlands. She grew interested in visual art, particularly scratchboard, at an early age while studying with Al Nelson Wietzel and Gail Adams. Lara’s steadfast fascination with wildlife and the environment led her to complete a BSc and MSc in Palaeontology. She was working on her PhD in Evolution and Functional Morphology when she decided to focus on wildlife art full time. Her research on animal biomechanics is reflected in her ability to accurately portray anatomy and movement, and her knowledge of evolution means she has an interest in expressing both living and extinct wildlife. Her scientific background allows her to collaborate closely with other scientists to promote new research. Lara’s artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums across North America and her work is currently represented by Michael Todor at the Todor Gallery in Drumheller, Alberta.
