What is Kyokos Crystal painting Art®?
Based on traditional Japanese painting, Kyoko Aoyama is drawing and creating her unique artwork with painting materials which are made from crystals and natural minerals. These sacred materials from nature are so sensitive and easily change their mood and condition affected by temperature and humidity. Kyoko claims〝That it is this sensitivity which allows me to feel and connect to spirits of mother earth and enhance my creativity.” She believes crystals which have lived for thousands if not millions of years are the manifestation of Love and Light from mother Earth.
Her Goddess’ series of artworks drawn and designed from the crystal minerals are magical holistic manifestations which embrace our spirits and retune our heart to the vibration of nature.
