Kara’s inspiring career has taken her far and wide, previously as an editorial and advertising photographer and more recently as a stylist, buyer and vintage wares retailer.
From finding much success within the photography industry in 2003 off the back of being the youngest person to ever win the much acclaimed ‘Canon Australian Institute of Professional Photography ‘AIPP Photographer of the Year’ title, Kara went on to photograph for some for Australia’s most integral magazine titles and shoot and style numerous high profile advertising campaigns.
Along side this Kara’s personal photographic work has been included in many prestigious exhibitions and acquired in permanent collections both locally and abroad, most notably an exhibition at the Sydney Opera House.
Relocating from Sydney to London in 2007, Kara indulged in her love for interiors and authentic wares through prop styling, sourcing and buying. From home delivering art masterpieces to Madonna (yes, that Madonna) to diving for barnacled earthenware off the Scottish coast, Kara has always been driven by the desire for beautiful objects for the home.
Kara is delighted to have returned to her home country, working with interiors and sharing her worldly finds with you, available from her unique ‘Travelling Wares’ caravan shop and her online retail experience.
Kara lives in Brisbane with her husband Timothy O and their flock of Pekin Bantam hens, in an old white cottage on a hill. Kara is 30 yrs old.
