Kyra has always been drawn to art growing up, which lead to her interest in 2D and 3D animation. She was originally ‪born in China‬, but was adopted by a loving American family. Animation has always been an inspiration to her with how it can pull its audience from reality to join it on an adventure. She studied at the Creative Media Institute at New Mexico State University and received her bachelor’s degree in Creative Media, then furthered her education at the Savannah College of Art and Design to get a Master of Fine Arts in Animation.
