Kara Lynn Designs
I am an artist and children’s wear designer in St. John’s Newfoundland, currently working out of a studio in the Quidi Vidi Plantation. I find inspiration and comfort in the strong craft and heritage preservation of this province.
My love of making blossomed in my first job at a reenactment museum in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Here, I recreated fur trade era garments. This work gave me an appreciation for traditional fabrics, patterns, and methods, which I carry on throughout my work today.
Upon my move from Ontario to Newfoundland, I found that same love of heritage everywhere, and blended the traditional designs from my life with the culture I had become a part of.
