As an educator and artist Crystal Nelson enjoys experimenting and exploring new techniques and materials. Her love of mark-making and surface design is evident in her bold and graphic mixed media paintings, prints and collage work.
Before returning to school for her BFA in printmaking and painting she studied graphic design. Her work is still heavily influenced by her love of design. Crystal often begins her work with no clear image in mind. She often allows the materials or techniques to guide the outcome.
Vessels and botanicals are currently images that the viewer might recognize and there is a heavy dose of Mid-century design influencing her work as well.
