Krysia Ara is an artist who specializes in mosaic and ceramic art while working in a variety of styles and mediums to keep things interesting. Krysia has long been interested in developing technical expertise to create quality work that stands the test of time. For many years she sought out skilled mentors, traveling far and wide to attend workshops with renowned mosaic artists. As for ceramics, a passionate interest that combines well with mosaic, she is fortunate to live in an area teeming with ceramic artists, and has never had to travel far to expand her knowledge.
In recent years, Krysia has become known in her Athens, GA community for installing public art mosaic projects, extending beautification efforts beyond her own house and garden. Notable projects include Project Ginkgo, with currently 17 ginkgo-themed mosaic light pole bases around downtown (supported by the Athens Downtown Development Authority); "Heron Sighting" in Dudley Park (Athens Cultural Affairs Commission); "Flow Mosaic" seat walls of Cobbham Triangle Park (Historic Cobbham Foundation); and mosaics at the remarkable Alice H. Richards Children's Garden at the UGA State Botanical Garden of Georgia.
Once a frugal traveler of the world who has visited over 50 countries, these days Krysia usually keeps her explorations closer to home. She remains inspired by the magic of nature and our resilient world.
