Happy Birthday: Kyra Markham
Kyra Markham was a printmaker and actress born on August 18th.
She was in close contact with people in the arts including a brief marriage to Frank Lloyd Wright's son and a scenographer. She also lived with writer Theodore Drieser.
She studied art at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Art Students League in New York. She participated in the Works Progress Administration creating pieces focused on everyday life. While, the artist also created murals, I'm really most fond of her lithography work. Her compositional structure is amazing. Really adding to the story of each piece.
Another artist who I can't find a quote for :( we'll just have to enjoy her work.
Happy Birthday Kyra Markham!
