Piece description from the artist
I had a dream of this rotund cat sitting in a reclining position staring directly at me. I found the dream of this cat so compelling that I tried to recreate it through paint. As the feline was painted, I had a feeling he held a much higher ranking than any house cat; he was a Persian Prince. Adorned with lavish sunglasses, and a royal cape, he speaks quite to that nature.

Her curiosity in the notion of past lives guides the creation of her characters. Kara has an avid appreciation for architecture and implements elements of design into her paintings. She currently works as a hair stylist and has been known to incorporate hair as a medium.
