About the Guest, Crystal Neubauer, In Her Own Words

Regardless of the mediums I include, my work always comes down to collage. Whether rendered in a 3-dimensional assemblage fashion or a 2-D picture plane, my fascination begins with found papers. I see these items as a metaphor for our own lives and seek to bring them together in a way that opens the viewer to a deeper experience of an overarching theme of personal redemption, where every part of who you are is embraced and nurtured. I call my process intuitive, but it all boils down to learning to trust and open oneself to the voice inside, the one that can guide creative decisions and bring about a much richer work of art than what skilled technique alone can do.

From obtaining gallery representation, to writing a book, to teaching workshops nationwide and opening a studio in my own neighborhood, learning to tune in to the voice within has led me on a journey of learning "I can"; and I am delighted to share what I have learned in hopes that others will achieve an "I can" experience of their own.
