By combining multiple art forms, diverse art materials, and experimenting with new and inventive techniques, Kara creates original, luxurious, unique, and glamorous abstract canvas artwork pieces. Every canvas is finished with a glass-like resin topcoat, sealing in the brilliant, pulsing, and vibrant colors thriving within. Your artwork may include (but is not limited to): Highly Concentrated Inks, Glitter, Watercolors, Alcohol-Based Markers, Broken and Crushed Glass, Crystals, Natural Gemstones, Cubic Zirconia or Manufactured Diamonds, Gold Leaf, Silver Leaf, Acrylic Paint, Natural Pigments, Oil Pastels, Gel Mediums, Powdered Charcoal, and Resin.
Kara's technique involves mixing careful paintbrush strokes with violent careless splatters and happy accidents. Creating perfection, destroying it, and then meticulously putting it back together. Through the intentional blending of the opposing, Kara purposefully melts the contracting with the expanding, concealing with revealing. Enthusiastically scattering sparkles into all things dull and mundane.
Kara aims to create an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes all of our vulnerabilities. By applying abstraction, manifesting thoughts, repeating mistakes, emphasizing aesthetics, and layering chaos between gold and glitter, a sort of wicked goodness emerges. It becomes blatantly apparent that she loves making rules almost as much as she loves breaking them. Since her work does not reference a specific recognizable form, interpretation can be multifaceted to some. Unveiled behind the ambiguous and completely unfiltered layers lies her private and highly subjective inner world. Her art features coincidental, accidental, and unexpected connections. Unconventional and experimental applications of various mediums and tools create an experience blissfully unanticipated by the viewer and always to herself.
Kara currently lives and creates in Gilbert, Arizona.
