Crystal is a first year IMFA student who grew up in a rural town just minutes from the big city of Bangor, Maine. She graduated from the University of Maine with a B.A. in Studio Art and eventually began working at the Graduate School at UMaine, where she spends her days. After work, in addition to exploring the beautiful synergy of the physical, psychological and spiritual levels of human abilities through an ancient style of martial arts from Russia known as Система (Systema), she focuses on documenting life with her camera and rocking out to music in her car. Crystal is drawn to people and things with an interesting story hidden beneath or within them. She is currently exploring the dynamic relationship of audio and visual art through unified storytelling.
