About the Artist

Krystal Booth is an artist fascinated by stories that reveal humanity and
humor. Sociology, psychology, and humor inspire her narrative
art. Subjective commentary and imagination about life experiences
saturate her colorful oil paintings. Her work can often be seen in
the Portland area galleries, as well as online at Blue Canvas
(www.bluecanvas.com), her blog (www.krystalbooth.blogspot.com)
and on her website at www.krystalbooth.com.

She earned a BFA in 2006 and a BA in 2008 from Indiana University
Purdue University, Fort Wayne. She also enjoyed apprenticing and
working as a tattoo artist while still in college. She learned that
tattooing was as soothing as knitting is for others…it was just knitting
with loud music in the background and big, burley guys hanging around.

Krystal was born in Coldwater, Michigan and grew up in the small town
of Angola, Indiana. After pursuing careers in psychology and acting
from Florida to New York, she finally found the courage to stop avoiding
her true calling of being a fine artist. This was something she knew at
age eight, but took a long journey to rediscover. Currently, she happily
resides in Portland, Oregon creating commissioned pieces in addition
to her own series of paintings and drawings.
