Krys is an abstract artist working predominantly in acrylic and digital manipulation. Her style is automatic, impulsive and sometimes chaotic. Exploring the art of imperfection and freedom of unconscious thought. She works with layers of paint and accidental marks to create ambiguous elements within each painting. These reflect a curiosity of human nature, psychology and form.
Her early work focused on pen doodle sketches that inspired her portraits - a series of androgynous cartoonish doodles with a hint of melancholy.
She grew up in Manchester and studied at Manchester Metropolitan University. During her career as a makeup artist, she developed an appreciation and approach to colour which enables her to manipulate expression and form.
