“I’m seeking to find that place where whimsy and life connect. I believe that is where an artist is both child and master, where art is both a celebration and a silence. This is where the artist has lost nothing in the life of a thing, but has instead given the subject new significance.”
In the years since earning her BA in Visual Arts from the University of Northern Colorado, Crystal has remained dedicated to her education and credits much of her progress to her studies with several renowned artists including Tina Garrett, Casey Childs, Keith Bond, and Joseph Lorusso. She is heavily influenced by historical masters of the late 1800’s Naturalist movement.
Crystal lives in Colorado with her husband, 5 sons, and sole female companion, a mischievous whippet named Indie.
She is the current Colorado State ambassador for the Portrait Society of America.
