Residing in the quaint township of Mount Victoria…
Kara Cooper (she used to be a Smith) finds inspiration in illustrations, photographs, found objects, favourite things, a hint of Australiana and the nostalgia of the Blue Mountains to create fun and quirky deco-style greeting cards, tea towels and earrings for her Mount Vic and Me range.
Having worked on countless graphic-design projects for clients for over 20 years, Kara decided it was time to do her own thing and started designing her own range in 2013. The range has been picked up by numerous stockists throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Where are the handbags?
After many years of playing with beautiful fabrics, Kara no longer does vintage handmade handbags & kids dresses. In 2013, married with two beautiful kids she decided to leave this behind and return to her graphic design career.
What else is happening?
In 2016 Kara is launching Blue Mountains Love magazine with three other partners. Stay tuned!
