2017

In January 2017, Kyra began creating with chemically reactant inks that required a work-time of less than 45 minutes.
The chemicals that built the textures of these paintings, then dissolve them, thus "aerial" photos had to be taken immediately upon the completion of the piece.

"each print is a captured moment in time; 
the pinnacle of beauty before decay." 

This method was utilized to create aerial-inspired abstracts, as well as detailed and accurate topography maps of regions, states, and planetary bodies. 

  • Over 10 commissioned works were completed for clients throughout the US, as well as Italy and Australia.
  • Through the funding of two Kickstarter campaigns (Ink the States and Ink the Earth) over 81 paintings were completed,
    shipping an estimated 2,000 prints to over 25 countries world-wide.
  • In addition to these categories painted nearly 15 abstracts and agates throughout the year.
  • Two of these abstracts won 1st place in both art shows for which they were submitted.

Here are a handful of the 100+ total pieces Kyra created in 2017:
