Palette Jewels #4


Original Oil by Utah artist Cristall Harper

Framed Size:  12" x 15" 

Born in Texas and raised in Missouri, Harper received a bachelor of fine arts in painting from Utah’s Brigham Young University in 2002. After several years of selling her work through boutiques and frame shops—and even on eBay—she made the decision in 2007 to focus on her art full-time. A tulip festival in 2009 inspired a wide body of floral work, which landed her first show at a gallery in Provo, Utah. When she began painting her yellow lab, Buttercup, the resulting work caught the eye of other galleries, including Astoria Fine Art in Jackson, Wyoming, where she was honored with her first solo show in 2018. In 2016, she was selected as the featured artist for the Art & Soup Charity Event in Salt Lake City, a show that annually attracts dozens of artists and thousands of patrons. Harper is a member of Oil Painters of America and American Women Artists. Her work has been featured in American Art Collector, Southwest Art, and the Salt Lake Tribune. She paints from her studio in American Fork, Utah, where she lives with her husband, a few rascally chickens, and her new yellow lab, Cricket. Harper is represented by Astoria Fine Art in Jackson, Wyoming; Gallery 330 in Fredericksburg, Texas; and FourSquare Art online.
