About the Artist
Born in Kentucky in 1986, Kara is an established painter whose work exhibits attention to detail and captures her subject’s emotion, as well as the power of affirmation. Kara has been drawing and painting since she has been able to hold a pencil. While attending high school in Louisville, KY, she was known to skip classes in favor of spending time in the art and photography studios. She credits the art and photography teachers for encouraging her drive to pursue a career in art. She attended Murry State University to study photography in 2004. There, she cultivated her eye for composition as well as technique in two dimensional and three dimensional media. Kara now works primarily in acrylic on canvas and will occasionally reach for her watercolors and ink.
Kara’s work has been shown in several group exhibitions, private collections, and has completed commissions for businesses, as well as personal collectors. She taught painting for nine years and was an artist for the Jack-o-lantern Spectacular in Louisville, KY, for six years. She is now a full-time artist staying busy with her work to normalize feminine anger.
