Portrait of an Artist Featured art by Karolina Adams

Karolina Adams is an artist working in ink and graphite. Adams illustrates life from within her head with a quirky style and a touch of sophistication, which mirrors her playful character with a serious core.   Art has always been a part of Adams’ life but it came and went in spurts. It was put on a shelf for a good few years while Adams worked full time in Interior Architecture.   Adams studied Interior Architecture at Columbia College, Chicago IL, graduated with a B.F.A. and entered the field. A few years later discovered that mundane space planning and the office atmosphere where too rigid for the change-craving spirit. Adams quit the job and went back to art full-time. In 2012 synchronicity took place; Adams found her sketch book from college, got encouraged to submit the drawings to a gallery and got accepted. From there other galleries expressed interest in representing Adams’ work. Currently, Adams is a permanent gallery artist in Phoenix, AZ and Lenox, MA. In addition, she has presented her work in solo and group exhibitions in Arizona, California, Colorado and Illinois. Adams’ work can be found in public installations and private collections throughout the US, Europe and Asia.
