A big-city education has affected Lara Duren’s artistic outlook, but not her enthusiasm for this area. She earned an MFA in Combined Media at City University of New York, Hunter College in 2009, and favors oversize earbobs of lace and bead that are striking in an urban artsy fashion. Handmade baby outfits are another favorite, each made of cotton and adorned with whimsical appliqué.

Says Duren: “Moving to New York was a culture shock and moving anywhere after New York was a shock as well. The artists in downtown and the Old City here are awesome. I love Knoxville!”
