Kai Nakashima

I am Kai Nakashima. I am a versatile artist and writer of everything from novels to poetry, and children’s books. I am fascinated and inspired by dreams, the mind, music of many kinds, nature, and animals – particularly birds. My art styles vary from realistic nature, to manga style, bizarre beauty, and surreal fantasies. I am open to many mediums, genres, and concepts.

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. I often collaborate with Arianna, so you can find her work in many of these books as well.

-PAINTING & ILLUSTRATION-

-POLYMER CLAY-

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-

These are repurposed Beanie Babies, restuffed, posed with a bit of sewing, and painted for a finishing touch. And my hand crafted Muppets.
