Moore to Art
Krystyna Moore is an Artist and Sculptor based in the Limestone Coast of South Australia. She has a focus on limestone sculpture and felt making with a specialised interest in Art Therapy and the benefits of creative expression for all.
'To me, art is an integral part of my life - a synthesis of my personal feelings, the subject or colours that move me or perplex me. At times it is a profound reflection of my spirituality.'
Krystyna’s fascination with Limestone sculpture started in 2005. As sculpting is a very physically demanding art form Krystyna was searching for another mode of expression to balance this out and then several years ago she discovered the rich and yielding world of felt making. She is currently developing a range of Fibrestone works - combining stone & fibre.
‘Wool & stone are diametrically opposed materials and I find exploring this opposition exciting; creating a balance of masculine & feminine energies in my art making.’
Krystyna is passionate about creativity and the power of imagination and art. In her role as Art Facilitator and Teacher Krystyna also has specialist skills in working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and learning difficulties and is committed to discovering new and innovative ways to connect people through art. She is currently experimenting with combining fibre with stone.
How long have you been making felted scarves?
I have been an artist for many years although working with fibre is a relatively new experience for me.
How did you get started?
I love experimenting with new media and discovery new ways of self expression and was attracted to the vibrancy of colour of the wool used in felt making and the paint like qualities of blending and combining fibres. Felting is like painting with fibre, a process of transformation from loose fibres to a textile that is unique and beautiful whilst leaving scope for my imagination to run wild.
What is your greatest inspiration?
I am especially inspired by the vibration and healing powers of colour. All my work is ‘made with heart’ and in particular my ‘Chakrasong’ range of scarves and wraps have been created by connecting to Reiki energy thus producing an energetic healing and balancing resonance for the wearer.
What is the greatest challenge to owning and operating your own business?
To develop a flourishing Creative Practice requires focus and discipline.
What is the best thing about owning your own creative business?
The freedom to express myself creatively and live an authentic life.
