Los Angeles, CA / Japan

Kozy Kitchens is a visual artist from Japan, living in Los Angeles over half her life now. Making with clay is a purely joyful experience for her. Her hand built ceramic sculptures and functional objects are playful, often humorous, and influenced by a deep appreciation of animals and the natural world. She also creates drawings, paintings, murals, and other projects under the moniker kozyndan (often along with her husband, Dan).


Kozyndan are husband-and-wife artists who work collaboratively to create obsessively detailed works of art. They work in drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. Their works is often revolving around nature and our disconnection/ need for reconnection with the natural world. They are obsessed with the ocean and being underwater and hope to someday come to rest at the bottom of the sea and slowly be devoured by deep creatures over many years.

Lily Seika Jones Solo Exhibition

Mar 6 -  April 1 , 2020

Reception: Mar 6 / 6 - 9 PM

Seattle, WA

Lily Seika Jones is a full-time artist/illustrator currently based in the third bedroom of a charming home in Shoreline, Washington with her husband and their two cats. She spends the majority of her time drinking tea indoors while creating highly detailed, whimsical watercolor and ink paintings, taking inspiration from her favourite childhood stories and mid-century illustrators, as well as the natural world of the Pacific Northwest. She graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2014 majoring in Literature, Fine Arts, and Education, and decided that very year she would pursue a career that would allow her to combine her all her passions and interests: book illustration. Since then, she has been freelancing and running Rivulet Paper Shop on Etsy. Lily is interested in how myths and fairytales shape our childhood and the world around us, and sees her art-making as an exploration of the significance of these stories as we grow up.
