My name is Kara Nettleton; also known as Notorioussart. I am currently going to New World School of Arts to receive a BFA in sculpture and then want to go on to receive a MFA in sculpture/ceramics. I have explored working with many different mediums of art. We live in a 3D world so I enjoy making 3D art. I have worked with clay, plaster, wood, glass, metal, soft sculpture and much more, often my art is mixed media. My art is to give a voice to all the animals who cannot speak up themselves. I am especially focused on the animals who are born into a world of torture and suffering from being in factory farms, to laboratories for testing, animals being killed from poaching and habitat destruction, and even the animals being used for entertainment. I create art with a deeper understanding of what the animal goes through. I hope to honor and revive the animals spirit and teach people, so they don’t die in vain. Any change through my art would be positive. At a young age, I developed my passion for art and was heavily involved in animal rescue from cats, dogs, even farm animals like goats, cows, and ducks. At age 9, I became a vegetarian and now vegan. It has followed a progression from a young age that my art would focus on animal rights.
