Kiira Anderson earned a BA from the University of Vermont (2007) in Studio Art and Asian Studies. There she began using her art practice to process the affects of her academic research on her worldview.
She studied abroad twice: in Tibet and northern India. Her senior projects at UVM included an installation titled Offering that was inspired by time spent at the dargah of Nizamuddin Aulia in Delhi, as well as a research paper on modern calligraphic painting in Pakistan.
In January 2012, she started producing showcards for 12G under the direction of Atif Sheikh and Aisha Khan; since then she has also done write-ups on exhibitions and designed catalogs and other marketing materials.
She is currently residing in northern New Jersey working on Tibetan thangka painting and graphic design and writing for 12G.
