Shows: A list of shows is coming soon
Karolina Adams is an introvert by nature, so drawing has always been her alternative to talking out her issues. Adams says "I’m not a very graceful speaker. My conversations are messy, I run in circles with my ideas, and trip over my words. When I draw, I’m clean, minimal, and to the point."
Instead of verbally sharing her internal chaos, it is easier for Adams to engage in drawing, unload the feelings, and work through the thoughts and emotions and tell her stories.
"Drawing quiets my scrambled mind. Most of the time, I do quick sketches in pencil, just to get the initial raw emotions out. I go through the emotion while creating the piece. I cry with my pieces, I’m joyful with them, and everything in-between."
Adams says, "sharing my work with the world at first was a scary thought , but it has gifted me tenfold, which I did not see coming. I realized that I’m not a weird duck in the way I think, see, and experience life. People get lost in my stories all the while find themselves in them, which makes me realize we’re all weird and in turn uniquely the same."
