Crystal has won several arts awards, including a Senior BC Cultural Fund Award, and a Canada Council Touring Award. She has a Bachelor of Music from the University of British Columbia, where she also studied Fine Art and Architecture. Working as an architectural design consultant and illustrator, she began creating very personalized house portraits in Vancouver in the mid 80's.

She has also taught studio art and creativity courses at post-secondary institutions and businesses in Vancouver, including Capilano College, and The University of British Columbia.

Crystal is now looking to establish a new collection of original artwork.

Her work has been widely covered in the media and she's exhibited in Vancouver and beyond.

My passion is painting, and my gift and joy is to be able to give people back themselves in the form of a painting. The study of music gave me a great appreciation for the relationship of form and content, and I have transposed the musical terms of composition, rhythm, harmony and colour in my visual work to express the passion I have for life, people and my community.
