Born in 1978 in Spokane Washington, USA. Crystal Renee currently lives in New Jersey and Long Island New York working with reclaimed materials to create unique, urban pieces of art. After training in Architecture and Interior design in New York City, She began to pursue her career in fine art after strong advice from a color theory professor who recommended that she further her education at Pratt or NYU. She did just that and had her work shown at the Belskie Museum of Art and Science in New Jersey and had much success at the New York Art Expo in 2013.
Her work has been displayed in the women’s and children’s wing at the Pascack valley Hospital and several works donated to Ducks Unlimited Wildlife Foundation in Idaho. After taking time off to raise a family, she reentered the art world Influenced by neo-expressionism and artist Jean-Michele Basquiat in 2020. Her unlimited palette leads her to work around the symbiotic relationship between written prose, scrap art, and 3D objects. For this, she is known as Staple Juice.
The artistic journey of Crystal Renee is punctuated by three stages: Play, which focuses on the initial catharsis of the poems, lyrics, and memoirs of her coaching clients and peers that have suffered from mental illness, brain injuries, PTSD, and addictions. Second, she embodies these emotions in a more expressive manner for the second layer that becomes the tapestry and foundation for the collage, and word placements that are purely intuitive. The final piece emerges with a new, cohesive energy that radiates with color, complexity, and emotion.
“If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play" ---John Cleese
