Crystal Jones

Crystal Jones is a self-taught artist, despite having no formal education or training in the arts. Shortly after she graduated from University of Alberta, she was looking for new challenges, and with the encouragement of an old boyfriend, he suggested that she get back into painting, after not having painted for more than 15 years. Crystal has been busy with the local art scene such as Creative Edmonton, Whyte Ave Art Walk, Harley Davidson Motorcycle Market, and  On the Spot Pop Up Market. She has gladly donated some of her paintings to various charities such as Friendship with Operation Friendship Senior Society, Greater Edmonton Animal Rescue Society (GEARS), and SCARS. Crystal's paintings has been on display at various local businesses such as Aveda Salon, Expressionz Cafe, and Saol Wellness Studio. She took part of Edmonton's Art Battle on May 7, 2015, as a contestant.

The Edmonton-based artist has created a wide variety of paintings ranging from modern, contemporary, abstract and landscape art. While Crystal enjoys painting different things or doing custom paintings, she is slowly making her niche in industrial-steam punk art, particularly with her gear paintings.

Crystal revels in learning and experimenting with new techniques, color schemes and mediums. She is very involved in promoting her art work on social media mainly on Facebook or Instagram. When Jones is not painting, she enjoys gardening, reading, going for long walks / hikes, discovering wonders in Edmonton, working out at the gym, and wine-tasting.
