Happy holidays from Lily Koto Studios! I have some exciting news for you.

All available works are marked as “available” in each title. Please consider buying a unique piece of fine art from me this holiday season as you complete your shopping (and help me survive London rent costs in 2016 when I relocate there). From now through to Dec. 31st, select available work will be on sale. Free gift wrapping and free shipping on all works over $1000. I now accept PayPal too, so email me with inquiries.

Hi friends,

It was a huge honor to have two works selected to be included in this evenings incredible art event, the TriBeca Ball!! The event is always an outstanding fundraiser for my alma mata: The New York Academy of Art. As an alumni, I am honored to be participating, and although I am VERY nervous to go to a red carpet art event ALONE with actual art stars and celebrities surrounding me, I will go proudly and hope I do not fall on my butt while attempting to walk in heels (not my forte).

The work below titled “I Just Woke Up” was selected to hang, and in addition I have a smaller painting in the coinciding alumni pop-up show. See everyone tonight!
