Kira was raised and educated in
California. She had the pleasure of working with master sculptor Richard
MacDonald for the last three years. Her current sculptures reflect a passionate
expression for the human spirit. Winner of “Best Sculpture” at the
Beverly Hills art show, this raw new talent has gone on to sell her work throughout
the world. The City of Rome, Italy, has chosen Kira to display her sculpture in
the Vittoriano Museum as the only sculpture.
Kira will continue to share her impassioned interpretation of the human
condition through this timeless medium of the sculpted form.
As a first-generation descendant of Armenian immigrants, Kira was raised with
an acute consciousness and compassion for the human condition. Losing the
majority of her extended family as a result of political unrest, Kira heard
stories of the intolerable cruelties and near obliteration of her struggling
people throughout her childhood years. Her 15-year career as a social worker
further influenced her insight and inspiration as an artist and her acute
observations of the plight and eventual rebirth of the human spirit.
Today, Kira is the founder and director of the nonprofit organization Clay Kids for Health, which makes bedside visits within the
Children’s Hospitals of Orange County, Calif. Trained by Richard MacDonald,
this internationally honored artist has been sculpting full time since late
