Feedback from one of Krystyna’s many clients:

‘I want to give my appreciation for how much I have learnt over the past few weeks with our ‘silver’ painting.  You have taught me so much in regard to the shapes and colours in reflections and it has shown me how to look in other areas to bring into my paintings and improve my outcomes.  Thank you.’  Helen Hussey, Splashout client, March 2016
