Artist ARTIST Profile: Crystal Belle



Hello My name is Belle. I am a self taught artist that was originally named after the singer Crystal Gail. My mother has forever called me Belle, so since my talent comes from my Mother I have Given this name my preference.

I have never considered myself an artist. I am simple creative. It has com in handy with two small children and my impulsive nature has proven helpful when trying new art forms.

ACEO became a passion of mine when my personal space was invaded by toddlers. I love my kids very much and never begrudged them the space, but I have missed my work space from time to time. Small works of art were my new tool and I have been creating and selling them for over 5 years now.

One of my favorite mediums is simply a pencil. I use artist's pencils and can sketch any photo now from practice, and have been known to love color even though you may seldom see it

I thrive on challenge and love creating in different themes or mediums. My art shows my passions and those of my fans (through requests) and I am always willing to try something new.



My love of nature is mainly expressed in the trees that captivate me most, however I seldom work with landscapes, I love photographing them. I have also recently picked up my pencil to start writing again. It is a rewarding exercise and I'm anxious to get to the point of sharing my fantasy worlds with you in words as well as images.

Thank you for your interest in my style and background. Visit my website to learn more about my eclectic background and click any image below to see my photo vault here with trading card museum.

I love your art and relate so well with your story! I too am a self taught artist as well as a stay at home mother of young kids Art to me, ranges from just something fun, to stress relief, to being down right theraputic some days lol. I work on my end table, or my kitchen table, or on a clip board on the front porch, just whenever and wherever I can. Oh to dream of having a big studio to spread out in
