Hi there everyone!
My name is Lara from LaraJayneDesign.

My love affair with art began from a young age, and it has always been a big part of my life. After leaving school I began working for a High Street bank, where I trained to be an underwriter for 22 years. During this time I continued to create art in my spare time and was very lucky to gain customers who shared my passion ❤️
I received my first box of Craft resin as a birthday gift in 2020, and instantly fell in love!
My first creation was a set of coasters and I was pleasantly surprised with how well they came out! This luck didn’t last long of course, and many lessons have been learnt along the way, but these lessons have been invaluable.
I love making a variety of things but my favourite thing to do is create a marble look using the resin and finish things off with a shiny metallic edge. I love the challenge it creates and making something so unique that no two pieces will ever be the same.
After 22 years in my job, I was given the option of redundancy and the chance to take a great leap of faith. With much trepidation, I opted to take redundancy and decided to use some of the money I received to build a new studio space at home. This has allowed me the freedom to concentrate on a new business, working full time with resin!
I couldn’t think of anything else I would love to do more with my life, and although it was one of the scariest decisions I have ever made, I am so excited for new things to come!
Thank you Craft Resin, keep being amazing 🤩.
