The Real Estate Studio welcomes local artist Crystal Miller's beautiful collection of abstract paintings. The show will be on display at the studio until Aug. 26.
Crystal Miller is a professionally trained decorative painter with more than 15 years of experience. She began her work as an artist in Boulder, Colorado, where she grew up sketching at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. After extensive traveling, she ended up in the Lowcountry, where she is inspired by the area's coastal landscapes.
Since relocating to the Charleston area, Crystal has transformed homes throughout the tri-county area and beyond. She focuses on color, blending and developing impressions of things that inspire her. Her company, Newlook Finishes, can transform any space into a work of art using walls, ceilings and now, paintings on canvas.
Crystal is self-taught, incorporating the influence of her certified training of specialty finishes to create truly unique paintings. The beauty of sunrises and sunsets are often represented in her work.
“I have been trained to do finishes that sell, so I look at canvas artworks the same way. People will invest in what they love and what they are drawn to,” says Crystal. Whether standing on a ladder bringing a European-influenced ceiling to life or creating in her studio adding splashes of color to a canvas, she feels truly fortunate to be able to do what she loves every day.
A reception is planned for Friday, Aug. 8 from 5-8 p.m. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. For more information, contact the Real Estate Studio at 843-722-5618.
