Krystyna Sadej is mostly known as a tapestry artist, and this woven medium has greatly influenced her mixed-media art. These texture-rich works reflect her own unique philosophy.
“The best thing you can do as an artist, is to allow yourself looseness of expression. Run away from conventional forms and landscapes by creating new relationships with traditional technique, color and media.”
Originally from Poland, she has exhibited her works internationally over the last 30 years, and her art is owned by collectors in Europe, Canada, and the U.S.
