Laela was reared in an exotic island of Oahu Hawaii, surrounded with the warmth of its people, brilliant landscapes and coastal beauty and is currently living and working in the inspiring city of Los Angeles in California.
Largely self-taught, Laela completed 32 hours of basic oil (8 hours) and pastel art lessons (with a hint of chiaroscuro) from an award-winning LA-based, international visual artist and art teacher, Vibul Wonprasat.
In January 2017, less than a year when she started oil painting, she was invited by an international New York-based gallery, Conception Global Art Collective, to participate in one of their nationwide juried fine art and photography exhibition in Los Angeles and was asked back in their spring exhibition.
In March, Laela was presented an opportunity to donate a themed-piece (which was very well received) for an organization dedicated to protecting endangered animals, Defending the Endangered, a cause she believes and supports.
Her work was also in International (Russian and Turkish) Festivals in Southern California in Spring 2017.
Her other artistic expressions include singing and dancing with inspirations mainly coming from her love of people, colors, nature and its mysterious wonders.
She is always excited working on new projects and is looking forward to seeing you in her upcoming shows!
Laela is a member of the Los Angeles Art Association (LAAA).
