Crystal Driedger's playful and charming original acrylic and oil paintings feature vibrant colours, enchanting textures and gentle, whimsical shapes. Often her pieces are hand-carved into soft basswood or are painted with thick, buttery strokes of rich oil paint. Some are intricate depictions of nature - botanical art and scientific illustration work. Many of Crystal’s pieces are inspired by memories and imaginings from a childhood spent in the forests and fields of her family farm. Her work is varied and vast from murals to tiny realism in coloured pencil, from enamel pins to large scale paintings of cows - her passion projects ebb and flow with her interests.
