Playful and charming, Crystal Driedger’s 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.
Crystals studio is in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada where she works full-time as an artist and illustrator.
