Happy holidays from Lily Koto Studios! I have some exciting news for you. I JUST updated www.lilykoto.com with over 50 new works from the past year, paintings from Germany and Dominican Republic are now up and more. 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.
My painting “I Swear I Have Seen This Before..” is on display at Pleiades Gallery in Chelsea this month as part of a group show organized by Tokyo-based curator Reno Oka. Located at: 530 W 25th St, Fl 4th, New York, New York. (through Dec. 26th.)

Finally, Lily Koto Studios is moving to London at the beginning of 2016. Be on the lookout for new work, designs, and show updates from the U.K. in 2016.

My Mum and brother Eli came to support me, which really meant a lot. We had an amazing evening, and I want to thank everyone at the museum for being so kind and encouraging to me. Means a lot.
My essay on hope and painting are now up on Edelman PR’s blog along with the other winners in their national storytelling contest, Your Storied Future. So exciting and I am very honored that they selected my work to showcase.
Exciting news: I found out yesterday I would have one of my paintings featured next Spring in the New Britain Museum of American Art’s Spring Auction. Extremely excited to have the opportunity to hang there again. Last year it truly was a dream come true to walk into their museum and see my piece hanging on their walls. They have a wonderful collection of works, and everyone I have met and talked to in connection with the institution has been absolutely lovely. Very honored and grateful to have this opportunity.
Hi friends, thank you all for your support.I just opened up my studio for the public during our MFA Open Studios at the New York Academy of Art, and things went very well. Lots of exciting news on the horizon. I am so grateful to know so many wonderful, supportive people, so once again, THANK YOU ALL! <3
