Hello! My name is Kara Leonardia. I am an artist, teacher, and an aspiring creative entrepreneur. I travel back and forth from my hometown of Bacolod to Manila depending on what needs to be done.
I am currently developing my brand and product line as you can see in my shop. When I am not designing, I am a part time Professor under the animation department of the College of Saint Benilde.
Next year, I am hoping to bring projects to Bacolod that can help give local artists more chances to sell their own products to a wider market. I believe in the talent and skills of our local artists and as someone who has benefited from the supportive creative community in Manila, I’d like to bring some of that support back home.
I firmly believe it’s possible to have a career in arts and that all we need is that chance to prove ourselves as creative entrepreneurs.
