Hey Guys! My name is Crystal and I'm a self-taught artist born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I've got a great guy and our 9 year old son is one of the coolest, sweetest kids I know! I currently work full time for a telecommunications engineering company and can honestly say that I don't mind my 9 - 5 job but, as most women in their mid 30's, I started feeling like I wanted a little more from life. Needed more from life, really.
Recently, I'd say about 6 months ago, I learned how to create fluid acrylic art and have fallen in love with it. I'm learning more all the time and welcome any new knowledge of it. It gives me a feeling of accomplishment when I finish a canvas or learn a new technique. It's calming, relaxing, and I can get lost in it like a good book.
It began just as fun, but then I started getting a lot of compliments and words of encouragement from my friends and family, especially my son and I'd even had a few offers from friends on some canvas' I'd painted so, I decided to see if my art is worthy of other Art lovers out there.
I am very excited to start this chapter in my life, this is really stepping out of the box for me and makes me nervous (and a little nauseous), so show me some support and let me know what you think of my art! (but don't be too harsh!!)
