Krystal Bilberry is an artist whose work is an expression of the joy she feels in her spirit. Drawn to color, movement and contrast, her acrylic paintings are full of energy and life. Krystal paints with the energy of joy and that’s why her pieces are signed “JOY!” on the front.
Originally from Alexandria, Virginia, Krystal was an artist from the moment she first held a crayon. Krystal grew up in difficult circumstances, but she was able to rise above it through art and community involvement. Her artistic talent gave her hope and made her feel like she mattered in a world that seemed so hard at times. So, it’s no surprise that she paints bright and uplifting paintings because art has always been her joy.
Krystal has a B.F.A. and an M.Ed., both from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Krystal and her husband have four children and live in the coastal area of Southeast Virginia. Even though her hands are busy with four small children, she still makes time to paint the joy in her spirit and share it with others.
