Hello, I'm LaDara! 

A Fine Artist, Ceramicist, and Art Educator based in Charlotte, NC. Owner of LaDara Fine Art! I create timeless artwork that touches your heart with rich textures and movement! 



Oh my gosh I can’t sing your praises enough! From the first time we talked, then during the time you were creating both paintings, I loved that I got to be a little part of the process! You showed me updates and I am beyond happy with the outcome! I need to take another inspiring trip to get some new material for you  You were communicative and easy to talk to! And even hand delivered the finished product!! - Mary

Working with LaDara has been a complete pleasure. This was the 1st time my husband and I had ever commissioned a piece of art so naturally we had questions. She remained so patient and gracious with our questions always reaching out for  feedback during the process and sending us updates along the way. I loved that she asked questions before getting started in an effort to learn a bit about my husband and I and the space that the art was going to be displayed in. She definitely made us feel very much a part of the process which meant so much to us.  Our piece is hanging in our bedroom so we wanted to have a very personal, very moody vibe in there, a piece that will work for everyone, but PERFECT for us, LaDara knocked it out of the park!

LaDara, my daughter had you do a very special painting for my birthday. It is of a grotto with Our Blessed Mother that she took a picture of when she was in Italy. I cannot express my happiness for this beautiful work of art. God has certainly blessed you with such a gift. Thank you so much for this beautiful art that is so very precious to me. God bless you always.- Nunnie Rose
