“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 uncomfortable and messy, the Source within has transformed trauma and shame to expose beauty through artwork. I’m driven by an inner fire that is unquenchable. This is fueled by my inner child recovering from trauma and speaking for the voiceless. She is the flame that drives me to create, explore, and do the unexpected. She is a goddess empowering my every step throughout the process of discovering myself as an artist. “ Krystal is self taught and 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 to name a few. Currently residing in North Texas with husband David, teenager, and 3 feisty dogs. Their studio is open by appointment only.
