Khrystyna Kozyuk – “Colors and Shapes Inspire Me…”

"Colors and shapes inspire me... Being an observer first, much of my inspiration comes from the world around us. When traveling I find myself appreciating all that the new landscapes have to offer. Recently, my time has been spent exploring different traditions and cultures. From the vibrant colored powders thrown during India’s Holi festival to the rich pigments seen in Native American headdresses; I create pieces that offer an abstract approach to these and other wondrous occurrences in our world. Using an oversized canvas and paint gives me the opportunity and space to experiment with a variety of colors, textures, and shapes. In learning different techniques, I am now using one that I have developed. Creating my own technique using liquid paint has afforded me the ability to put my own modern spin into each piece. My ultimate goal with my work is to open your eyes to the beauty that is around us by showing the viewer my feelings behind each piece."

The summer of 2022 was to be a special season of expression for abstractionist Khrystyna Kozyuk. She had been scheduled to do two separate museum exhibitions in her native Ukraine, one in the city of Lviv and one in the city of Chortkiv.

While a dark cloud has hung over Ukraine for months due to the conflict, and has postponed Khrystyna’s homecoming exhibitions, her creative spirit has continued to flourish in her adopted city of Sedona, Arizona.

Khrystyna has been an artist since childhood, and even though early attempts were made to channel her talents through musical expressions, the heart was urging her to paint. She studied in Ukraine, and after immigrating to the United States she furthered her art-based studies at Triton College in Chicago.

Her style is purely from within, drawing inspiration from experiences in life – experiences that migrate as liquid ink on canvas through personal filters of perception. Her commitment is to produce single originals, without giclee reproductions.

Khrystyna Kozyuk operates her own studio in Sedona, where she paints with a passion for constant renewal. She may be visited online at and
