A little about the Artist
Upon graduating high school in Maine, Audrey struck out to explore what the world had to offer. Her adventures expand over 5 continents and 38 U.S. states. Through these travels, she realized Maine was home. Audrey’s artistic side actually derives from working in economic and community development. Through this work, she saw too many women struggle with self-doubt. Her solution - design quality, affordable bangles to inspire, challenge, and encourage women to dream, achieve, and celebrate their everyday success.
In Audrey’s own words: Being middle aged and diving into an industry I knew little about was risky. After 14 months of exploring the idea of KA ORA, the decision came down to answering 1 question- what if I fail? My answer was simple - return to my “day job.” Fast forward 3 years - I’ve learned a lot from the successes and redoes in designing bangles. I’m able to design something that is indirectly assisting women to combat their self-doubt - one wrist at a time!
