Larissa Blake is one of the newest artists to join the JUMBLED art gang! Her intense colours, bold compositions and impressively large scale pieces are right up our alley. Orange locals would know Larissa well (and have probably spotted her in store now and again) but we wanted to give you all the chance to get to know this clever lady!

Where do you find your inspiration | My art is inspired by the everyday, the world around me. I’m constantly taking photos for references. The stunning view from my studio informs my landscapes, and my collection of objects and furniture appears in my interiors. The garden is increasingly featuring in my work, which is no surprise as my husband Matt, owns a garden centre. I recently realised a tendency to also paint what I feel is missing or what I wish to manifest in my life.
Dream holiday destination | New York. It’s awesome, the energy there is incredible. I can’t wait to go again.
Your perfect day | I’m a night owl so my perfect day would include: a sleep in, day care, yoga session, hit the studio, and Matt cooking dinner. Well, we can all dream. No really, I like to keep things pretty simple, a coffee with a girlfriend is a treat, time in the studio is a must and dinner with the family makes me one happy chick.
Describe your style at home | My home like my studio is a beautiful mess. Last year I attempted 'the life changing magic of tidying up', I’m still doing the sock fold thing but it’s doing my head in. I have a weakness for cushions and books, paintings everywhere, (my mother Loretta Blake is also a painter) and an ever-increasing collection of pots and plants. It’s full and interesting and I love it. I could be your poster girl for 'more is more less is a bore’
