Illustration can be used to communicate an idea or theme in a variety of ways. Cara's illustration services span across editorial, magazine illustration, infographic illustration, apparel illustration, cartoon illustration, typographic illustration, and much more. Although a particular style is evident, various other styles can be achieved.


Murals, public and live art are frequently used to evoke an illustration or design on a large scale. There's no wall too big or too small and often take anywhere between 1 - 5 days to complete. Cara's murals can fit within a variety of interior and exterior spaces such as pubs, clubs, and restaurant venues. Commercial and private property murals and public art are our specialty. 



Graphic design services include DL flyer design, poster and flyer design, Infographic design, business card design, social media management and promotional material, and various marketing graphic design. Cara can read the vibe you're after and create visually appeasing work right on point. From small business to large, she'll have a tonne of ideas ready to go.


Cara has been lucky enough to create a variety of art live in front of various Australian audiences. From clients such as The Other Art Fair  and Optus, live art consists of creating a piece of art in real time as a form of  entertainment. Cara's services include both small and large scale canvas painting, live digital projection and animation and aerosol and graffiti art.



Large walls to small halls, Cara can add some colourful flare to any blank space. Murals can take anywhere
from 1 day to 2 weeks, all depending on style, size and complexity. All materials will be covered unless specified otherwise.


Illustration can be used across print and digital collateral, to apparel and print merchandise. 
All illustrations take various lengths of time to create, some longer than others. Each design can
be colourful or black and white, detailed or simplistic, emotive or aesthetic. The design brief
is entirely up to you!
