Krystyna Spink West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Over the years I have studied many arts and crafts.I now focus on painting fine art using acrylic, recently experimenting with watercolour and mixed media.My crafts back ground has inspired and fuel'd my chosen path of painting. Art brings to life my experiences, memories and dreams, propelling me into fantasy landscapes and out of this world.
The fascination for fairy tales has a strong influence on my art today. I am self taught and have been painting for twelve years now. I am in an art group called Arts and Minds which I joined five years ago. I was exhibiting my work in joint exhibitions with my art group up until last year when I had my first solo exhibition.I have another solo exhibition booked for this October which I am painting for, it will run at the same time as our annual joint exhibition in the centre of Leeds.I am interested in various art projects, some of which have included CD covers ,working with classical composers, art walks, pop up exhibitions, working with other artists, commissions, tv and radio.

It shocked me that I won , but it was a blessing for me....this was when I started to take my art seriously and began to paint full time.
