Sisters Karen and Vanessa established Kava Art to share their passion for abstract resin wall art. Working from a home-based studio in Melbourne, Australia, they create striking original designs that inject colour and movement into your home and life.

“We love that a gorgeous piece of art can totally transform a room. Resin’s fluidity and high gloss finish make the colours really pop, allowing you to decorate your room with furnishings that complement the colours of the painting and make it a real feature.” says Karen
Widely travelled, Karen and Vanessa’s striking designs draw inspiration from fashion, décor, architecture and the culture of some of their favourite  places. They work on each piece of resin art as a team, combining their talents and tastes to create something truly special – Karen describes her style as “earthy and natural”, while Vanessa is drawn to the beachy colours of the tropics and bold hues of legendary destinations such as Mykonos and the French Riviera.

Both artists have backgrounds in property renovation and property styling, giving them a keen eye for aesthetics and a great sense of how to bring a space to life with artwork.
“Resin is such an exciting medium to work with - though you may have a clear vision of what you want to create, the resin will ultimately decide the end result,” says Vanessa.

Karen and Vanessa live in beautiful Bayside Melbourne with their young families.
