Lila Rose Kole is a professional artist whose primary focus is producing abstract paintings in the style of the New American Tonalists. Based in Cleveland, Ohio, Lila divides her time between managing Hartshorn Studios, co-owning “The Vault” at 78th Street Studios, and creating commissioned artwork for corporate and private collections. To give words to her paintings and approach, Lila contracted with Prosper for Purpose for brand development and strategy.
