Crystal Roy was born in Sudbury, Ontario in 1984 and she now lives and works in Newmarket, Ontario.
From a young age Crystal spent many years exploring, experiencing and experimenting with different techniques and styles in her artwork. After high school she moved to Toronto to study at OCAD University and graduated with her Bachelors degree in Fine Arts. Inspired by artists from the Dada and Surrealist period Crystal has learned that things may not always be as they seem. Currently she is working with multiple mediums, she has always been driven to create and pursue her passions. Over the years she has fallen in love with the world around her and uses it as inspiration for her latest series.
Crystal has two bodies of work that she has focused her painting on. The first addresses togetherness; using nestalgic imagery Crystal presents objects, or places that represent people coming together. The second series examines the mysteries and colours that the universe holds and the vastness of space; drawing inspiration from the heights of the stars to the depth of the sea; how rays of light can expose the wonders of neighboring galaxies, adventures held in the forests and the thrilling marvels the oceans have to offer, her art reflects the awe and wonder of nature near and far.
