About Kimberly Kuniko | Lacelit

HELLO, FRIENDS. I'm Kimberly Kuniko, the Nikkei hapa illustrator behind Lacelit, a paper goods company featuring endearing illustration and clever wordplay. I love hosting cozy, virtual Guided Creative Retreats each month with new themes, the Dream & Scheme community of creative small business owners, and sharing new #dreamscapings prompts on IG for creatives of all mediums to enjoy. Most recently, I've been enamored by the art of paper collage, multimedia art, and found words poetry to make what I like to call 'lacelit paperlings'. ^.^



LACELIT'S STORY
Lacelit started as a daydream several years after college and a psychology degree had come and gone. Discovering art in my late twenties and being a self-taught artist, it took me some time to develop my style and discern what and how I enjoy creating. From the dear, lace-like geometrics where Lacelit got its name, to painting freehand watercolor patterns with vibrant brushstrokes, to hand-lettering phrases of clever wordplay, and exploring the art of paper and multimedia collage- it's a comforting thought to know there's always more to learn and places to grow.

As a multi-racial, half-Japanese and half-white American hapa born in Los Angeles, I grew up with two diverse socializations. From my earliest memories, I was introduced to multiple ways of thinking and expression simply by observing the behaviors, perspectives, communication styles, thought processes, and traditions represented in each side of my family. I've long loved and resonated with different aspects of each culture, and learned early on that there are always several ways to see the same thing. It's through the decisions I make and actions I take that I truly choose who and how I want to be. My Nikkei roots influence and inform my art in many ways through a love and appreciation of paper, whimsical imagery and thoughtful subject matter, intentionally balanced detail and color, and the poetic sentiments and affirming turns of phrase that give life to my work. It's in the interweaving of both cultures that I illustrate, design, paint, make, and write.

A HOME FOR LACELIT ON PATREON
My Patreon is a way to support my creative work, connect with me, and engage in creative community by pledging a monthly subscription to the tier of your choosing. Each tier includes treats and whimsies to enjoy and engage with as much as you wish, and my hope is it to serve as a gentle, affirming space where I can share my creativity with you, connect over cozy conversations, and explore creative prompts together.

Your patronage helps me continue to-
  • create more art, products, and prompts,
  • design and host Guided Creative Retreats, Small Business Retreats, and art workshops,
  • and explore new creative projects I haven't yet had the time or resources to pursue.

A pledge of any size makes a tangible difference
and supports me in continuing to grow Lacelit in both meaningful and sustainable ways.
