After an education from the Ecole des Beaux Art, Rouen, France, Crystal returned to Boston for a position as an assistant gallery director. Two years of interacting with artists and clients gave Crystal the experience she needed to venture out on her own as an independent Art Consultant. Before moving to the South Shore of New England where she is currently located, Crystal had a gallery in the Fort Point district of Boston, where for nine years, she worked with many corporate clients both locally and in Europe.
An Art Consultant since 1992, Crystal has acquired over three hundred clients; many of these involving large scale commissioned projects. Collaborating with multiple artists and designers, she proposed the project as well as managed the creative process.
For over twenty years, Crystal has worked closely with a variety of artists working in a multitude of medium; Photography, Sculpture, Portraiture, Painting, 3D Construction, and animated character drawings, the latter which are now installed in many Boston hospitals.

• Consulting: Determine location of art, layout and installation of new or existing art
Crystal will visit a site with attention to light, layout, design, function and budget. After gathering a selection of appropriate options, Crystal will then present the art on-site in its intended location.
A quote will then be provided including the framing and installation.
Generally the process from the first appointment to installation is approximately one month. If the project involves commissioned art that would be concluded once all the details are determined.
The process of selecting art is a personal one. The client should be able to spend time with a piece to see it in its intended environment, Crystal offers this to ensure that a potential client is completely happy with their choice.
