Lara Salmon was born in 1987 in San Diego, California. Her childhood years were spent filling notebooks with drawings of princesses and mermaids, playing pretend in the backyard, and making videos with the girl down the street and Mom’s camera.

At age fifteen an experience with severe chronic pain in Lara's hips and knees began. It was at this point that the innocent artistic endeavors of childhood took on morbid undertones.

Upon partial recovery Lara moved north to study at UC Berkeley. She spent her final year of college in Beirut, Lebanon, where she completed a provocative senior thesis (see Collision), had her first experience with performance art (see 777), and developed a love for the Middle East.

Lara currently lives in Los Angeles, California. In 2011 she began painting with blood, a year later beginning work on The Blood Portrait Project, in which she uses her phlebotomy knowledge to paint people in their blood.

Soon to follow was Blood Film, a collaboration with Kevin Walker. It is an experimental short, which screened in twenty-three festivals, received six awards and has several distribution offers.

Lara is now working on The Veil stop-motion film project inspired by her experience as a woman in the Middle East and in California. She also prepares for No Vacancy, an art show to benefit Syrian refugees, and pursues acting opportunities.
