About me

Hello! My name is Cristal, and I'm a freelance artist in Oakland, CA. I specialize in illustrations, graphic design, pencil art, acrylic paintings, and watercolor. I made up my mind in kindergarten that I would be an artist, using illustrations from books and magazines as references to get better. In middle school I discovered anime which helped me learn about lighting, shadows, and movement. By high school I was taking commissions on portraits and hand lettering. Fast forward to today, I dabble in different styles, types, and mediums of art for any project while enjoying life with my partner and 3 spoiled cats =)
