This Year’s Featured Local Artist: Kira Lodder

Each year we celebrate a local Hamilton artist with a design on the Holiday Bag. This year’s featured artist is Kira Lodder. Kira is a Hamilton-based graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist. She works with her hands to create design and illustration in all kinds of mediums. Art is her first love, and she learned to push the boundaries both creatively and conceptually while doing her Bachelors of Fine Arts at OCAD University with a postgrad in Graphic Design at Humber College. Kira lives with her husband Ben in downtown Hamilton where she can be found drinking coffee and drawing in her ever-present sketchbook.
