Kira is a freelance visual artist whose work focuses on various topics such as fashion, comics, culture and portraiture. She is passionate about art, culture, travel, nature, and photography which she documents on her Instagram and blog.
She is a self-taught artist who grew up in Washington, DC with her mother and sister. Growing up, she wasn't able to take art classes and build up her skills, but she was blessed enough to have a mother that believed in her talent. Kira's mother took her and her sister to art supply stores and even visited the museums downtown to educate and inspire her children. That being said, learning and educating herself about different artists and techniques has helped Kira throughout her career. She thanks her past teachers, including her mother for her the importance of exploration and taking risks. Kira has maintained her curiosity through all of her creative pursuits.
