Painter Audrey Kawasaki works in a cozy two-story Los Angeles apartment that also serves as her home. The place is filled with light, books, art, and a cornucopia of creepy, cute collectibles.

This one is a privately commissioned piece. Not sure if the cats belong to the person who commissioned the art.

Her taste runs from cute to creepy.

She has run out of space on this set of shelves and is thinking of installing more.
