Jewelry by Crystal Fosnaugh

What artists inspire you?
I am inspired by artist whose skills stem from breaking the rules of tradition, who have no limits to their technique. I am also drawn to complexity, simplicity, having a voice and nature.

What problems do you encounter in your art practice; how do you solve them? I try to tell myself any problem I encounter is part of the process. I try to not do too much strategic planning which helps in eliminating there ever being a problem.

What importance do the materials that you use have to your art?
I work in many mediums, utilizing them as needed. I like the idea that watercolor, oil and encaustic medium are very close to their natural state.
