“The old Naniloa Resort Hotel is being morphed into a “living gallery”, courtesy of Hilo born and Los Angeles-based artist, Kristie Fujiyama Kosmides. Kosmides is helping to renovate the property by adding artistic elements for future guests to enjoy.” – Modern Luxury Magazine

“Even over the phone, there is something calming about Kristie Kosmides. It makes sense that this calm, balanced, and radiant person would be the artist behind an extensive collection of visually calming, at times abstract, yet organic oil paintings.” – Blythe Hill,The Culture of Art, OC Gazette

“Don’t be a stranger to Kristie’s progressive work; this series demonstrates what great art is all about: inspiring creativity in the minds of viewers.” - Art and Living Magazine
