Challenged to adapt through physical injury, recovery and the artist's new normal allowed for perspective to see potential in materials often not valued. This led to transforming what are unlikely materials into ecological elegance. No longer discarded, crayons from elementary school supplies that came home every year before summer resulted in one of the artist's most favorite creations: Mountains Majesty.
"The mask I once wore to shy away from the uncomfortable and unwanted in my own life has been transformed through acceptance. Leaning into the discomfort, I look for value there and it fuels the fire of my soul. Every individual has a story to tell and what I enjoy most is the process of collaborating with another to find beauty in their own story. Leaning into the uncomfortable and messy, the Source within has transformed trauma and shame to expose beauty through artwork."
Krystal is a self taught artist who looks for unique opportunities to display society's undervalued as beautiful with materials like joint compound, dried out felt tip markers, and water damaged paper. Currently residing in North Texas with husband David, teenager, a feisty dachshund mix and a sweet basenji pooch, their studio is open by appointment only.
