Kara’s resent solo exhibition, Align (2018), was a culmination of an 8 month Artist-in-Residence at the Lunenburg School of the Arts. The show explored decoration as object through ceramic surface and fine-layered paper sculpture. Kara was awarded a Creation Grant from Arts Nova Scotia to complete this project. Kara has exhibited her work across Canada, most recently at Medalta International Exhibition, Dish, celebrating what ceramics brings to the table (2017-2018), juried by Julia Galloway, MFA, professor at the University of Montana.

Kara’s work has been collected and exhibited by the Art Bank of Nova Scotia (2019) and published in The Crafted Dish, a book highlighting Canadian ceramics published in partnership with National Clay Week (2017). She is an alumni of the year-long NSCAD – Lunenburg Community Studio Residency Program (2013-2014).

Kara has been an instructor in ceramics at Lunenburg School of the Arts since 2016.
