Originally from North Carolina, Cara moved to Austin, Texas in 2007 after earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Appalachian State University.

Cara has been painting and drawing since childhood and, while developing her skills in college, discovered a love for graphic design, screen printing, and pottery. She has worked as an in-house graphic designer for local companies including The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema and Whole Foods Market.

Currently, her favorite medium is acrylic paint, which she uses to create bright, fun paintings of a variety of subjects, usually inspired by the natural world.

Cara has been a participating artist in the 5×7 Annual Art Show & Fundraiser at The Contemporary Austin as well and a participating artist in the West Austin Studio Tour.

She draws inspiration from nature and enjoys hiking Austin’s Greenbelt as well as exploring our National and State Parks.
