Crystal is a native of Oil City, PA. She loves living in the Oil Valley, near the Allegheny River. She enjoys spending time in nature and at home, with her 3 children, fiance, cat and dog. Laughter, art, and music fill their days. There is never a dull moment and that fills her heart with happiness. Crystal has always appreciated all forms of art. She loves reading about past and present artists. She finds the stories behind each piece of art to be just as interesting and inspiring as the art itself. Drawing inspiration from nature, music, and everyday life; she creates one of a kind pieces of “fun”ctional art. In 2020 she tried fluid art. She fell in love with the uniqueness of each piece. Never knowing what to expect. She is always experimenting and learning new techniques; creating art using acrylics, wood, glass, and vinyl records; often giving new purpose to old objects. Imagination leads to creation.
Crystal took second and third place in the Adult Amateur Mixed Media category at the 2020 Oil Heritage Festival Art Show.
