I am Kai Nakashima. I am a versatile artist, author, poet, and lover of nature. I’m currently studying music, Japanese, and sustainable living. I am fascinated and inspired by dreams, the mind, music of many kinds, nature, and animals – particularly birds. My art varys from realistic nature, to manga style, but I like to combine beauty and the bizarre for surreal fantasies, best. I am open to many mediums, genres, and concepts, and hope to try as many as I am able.

In 2019, I released a digital book on our blog each month, and intend to continue to do this so long as I have one to share. My writing projects range from Children’s books to novels, poetry collections, and hopefully soon, animal/pet and nature content. I am also working on comics, and have written songs and meditations, which can be found in Arianna’s gallery (meditations).

My Polymer Clay work

These figurines and dolls were sculpted in polymer clay and painted with acrylics. The dolls clothes and hair were handmade, and the figurines have stone applications.

Other Creations:


This is my first puppet creature, Fuzz Muffin.

These are repurposed Beanie Babies. Restuffed, posed with a bit of sewing, and painted for a finishing touch.
