“CCC @ 428,” Oil, Crystal Moll

Crystal uses the streets of Baltimore for a majority of her work as her focus subject. She also often finds herself on the beaches of South Carolina and farms of Maryland’s Eastern Shore for different inspiration, away from Urban landscapes.

“Grand Girl,” Oil, Crystal Moll

One of the main goals for Crystal and her artwork is to give the feeling of “being there”. For her to be able to create this feeling it will often take much longer for her to complete different works and may have to wait for the seasons to change again before continuing a painting.

 “I am drawn to color especially as it is bathed in sunlight…investigating the colors reaction as it is bathed warm in sunlight or cooled in shadow.”

“Towne Barbers,” Oil, Crystal Moll

She very much believes in taking her “sweet time” to complete a piece as it may take her from days to months to complete, ensuring that it will allow the viewer to “enter the scene”.
