Crystal is a city girl at heart but was born and raised in the small town of Hays, Kansas. She spent 3 years enjoying the Vegas heat and teaching Paint Nite before moving to Virginia. She has a diverse background and skill sets perfect for helping you drink creatively and take home a masterpiece! She received a B.S. in Dietetics from Kansas State University, and discovered it's much more fun to "color outside of the lines" and "think outside of the box." Her creative outlets have included many mediums such as web design, graphic design, knitting/crocheting, teaching group fitness classes and most recently acrylic painting. She likes to have fun in whatever she does and her mantra is, "If you're not having fun, don't do it!" You are sure to have an amazingly, fun time in Crystal's events as she coaches you through the painting so you can relax, have fun, and paint a masterpiece you'll be proud of!
