Manc of the Month: Kryshia Adamiec

Manc of the Month: Kryshia Adamiec

KA: As I’ve not been painting for very long a variety of my work is on Instagram under kryshiacontemporaryart. I also have an e-mail address where you can contact me to either discuss or buy or just make arrangements to come over to the studio to look. It’s [email protected] Most of the work is better seen in real life and anyone is welcome as long as l know. There will never be any pressure, just a pleasure. I have also just applied and been accepted to show at a new Artisan market being set up in Marsden just outside Uppermill towards Huddersfield. As soon as dates are released l will put them up online. Obviously looking, as are lm sure are all makers, for any suitable venue willing to show my paintings.
