An Alumnus Spotlight: Kira Lomele-Bunce

Kira Lomele-Bunce is not only a LIHSA Alum (Class of 2017), but we are thrilled she has returned to LIHSA as a staff member this year.

A visual artist, Kira studied with Jason Cuvelier at LIHSA before heading off to Pratt Institute to continue her art studies. Some of her mediums she has used includes  illustration with markers, drawing with charcoal, and painting.

She enjoyed her time at Pratt with special memories of a two-week trip she took with her advisor to England. While visiting London and Bath they visited many of the cities’ treasured museums.

LIHSA helped Kira prepare for the rigorous curriculum at Pratt and she especially credits the opportunities to do figure drawing and work on her portfolio.

Kira is continuing to create art, currently focusing on painting with acrylic to produce narrative work with scenes that are dreamlike.

We’re so glad Kira has returned as a Teacher’s Assistant this year. Welcome back Kira!
