Kyra grew up in the art capital of the pacific, Lahaina. She loves travel and has lived in California, New York, and on Oahu before returning to Maui. She has an eye for all things beautiful and loves the culture art brings to a community. Besides taking incredible family portraits, she also loves to draw and paint.
