JoyKo is the creation of Chicago artists Rachel Joyce and Karen Sako, artists who collaborate together to create unique, abstract, mixed media, oil & cold wax paintings. After years of working together and sharing studio space we decided to join forces to bring our collectors beautiful and affordable original art.
JoyKo began with the idea of creating small works, but painting them at the same time. This way we could complete upwards of 40 cohesive paintings in one studio session. While we enjoyed this process and have repeated it a couple of times since our first series, it was eventually decided that we needed to work larger. We have since created works ranging as small as 4×4 all the way up 36×70!
