Born in Northern Ontario, Cara Kansala now calls Newfoundland home. A full-time visual artist, she co-created the well-known “Grumpy Goat Gallery” in 2006. Known for her colourful depictions of familiar Newfoundland sights such as frolicking laundry lines, icebergs and rural outport villages, Cara’s work is a recognizable fixture throughout the province. From the whimsical, brightly coloured mural at The Newfoundland Chocolate Company on Duckworth Street to the brightly coloured starfish that cover the Craft Council of Newfoundland and Labrador building, Cara’s work brings smiles and laughter wherever it lands. Drawn to the rugged landscape and the energetic spirit of the people, she finds constant inspiration in her surroundings.

Cara currently spends her time working in her studio between Upper Island Cove and St. John’s where she lives with her partner Ailsa, two children, two goats, two cats, a dog named Gretel, and five minnows.
