Since she was young, Kiana has always been interested in art, but it wasn't until, at age 14, when she began to study under Leslie Lienau in the Youth Atelier, that she realized how much she really enjoyed it. For over 5 years she has studied classical drawing and painting methods. During the course of those years she has also broadened her scope by studying with various visiting instructors such as Sarah Sedwick, Scott Waddel, Andrew Ameral, and Vincent Jeannerot. Kiana works diligently in her home studio and at the Oklahoma Academy of Fine Art studio. She won first place in both the drawing and painting categories In the 2014 OCHEC art contest is a member of the Teen Artist Guild (aka TAG), in which she served two years as President. We are extremely pleased and proud to count Kiana as a member our faculty.
