Dee Aaron is a 35-year-old UK artist that goes by the name Kozo Store. She is based in the picturesque seaside town of Lytham St. Annes.
Her work is heavily influenced by her African heritage. Kozo means peace, comfort in Lozi (Zambian dialect). Think of it like the Zambian “Hygge”. Her art reflects this in its practice and in its message. The act of creating art is like a therapy, not only does it bring comfort, but also release.
She creates work usually in a theme or series, exploring concepts and mediums. She often uses ink, pencil, watercolours, mixed media, but her preferred medium is acrylic.
