This is me. I am Crystal. I have been an artist since my childhood. This is a story about how God uses my personality to create and share.
I have always been artistic and musical. But when I get on a stage in front of people, my brain shuts down. I can't think, talk, remember, nor can I sing when I am in the center of attention.
I pick up on facial expressions and details that most people seem to be unaware of. This aspect of my brain is an overdeveled right brain function and it serves me well in visual arts. God made me this way, and I have been this way since childhood.
I am most inspired when I am walking alone in nature. This is my time when I talk with God and think about life. He seems to speak to me often through word pictures which I can then put on paper whether in writing or painting.
After I have an idea, I will go home and work independently in a quiet place.
Not only am I passionate about creating, I am also driven to share what I create. I have found and outlet and a love for teaching children how to be confident in their own unique creativity.
