A Creative Excuse #27: Kara Duval
Kara is a lover of artistic expression. She believes in the power of a well-crafted story, especially the stories that lifts up the spirit and makes us want to be truthful, heroic, humble, more humane. While Kara has wandered into and wondered about many other creative mediums, performance has been a life long companion and teacher. She has performed on stages, in galleries, in coffeehouses, and on street corners. Many of these performances have been scripted, but more have not. The unscripted, live wire ones is where the sublime is found for her - following the constant shifting fluid state of being. Along with being a performance artist and holding a BFA in Photography and Digital Media, Kara has been a practicing massage therapist for over a decade.
