Scott is a talented artist, who graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Studio Arts, and has worked for the Virtual Reality Applications Center on the Iowa State campus.
When asked how she got started Scott said, "I have been interested in drawing for as long as I can remember. One year at Veishea, there was a need for volunteer caricature artists. I decided to try it out. It went so well, and I had so much fun, I decided to look for more opportunities. Eventually I started my business, called 'Kiracatures'."
Along with her travels to fairs and community events throughout Iowa, Scott is a very talented musician and also enjoys acting. She has participated as a cast member in both the Mount Vernon and Ames Community Theaters.
Scott became involved with the Cherokee County Fair when representatives of the Cherokee County Fair Board met her at the county fair convention and invited her to last year's fair
You can look for Scott and her Kiracatures outside of the Commercial Building at the fair on Friday July 10 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and again on Saturday, July 11 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. All of Scott's drawings are free for the public.
