Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Kara. I was born in Paddington New South Wales. I am a proud Saltwater woman from the dharawal tribe of La Perouse Sydney, where we have a strong connection to the saltwater of the Botany Bay and surrounding areas.

My Family ties extend form La Perouse to the Shoalhaven, I am a descendant of Kathleen née Simms and Thomas Saunders.

I started painting in my early childhood, and continued painting all through high school, doing my final year exam in visual arts. ​
