Crysta Luke, who was raised in Stone Mountain, has loved drawing and painting throughout her life. When she was younger, she made her way into Atlanta every chance she could to be around the people and things that aligned with her ideas and aesthetics. Luke found inspiration in the nature and people that the city had to offer.
Nowadays, she creates abstract work and playful, beautiful pieces inspired by emotions and the human condition. She uses acrylic paints and oil but also takes it back to her roots with the things she used in her childhood – crayons, pastels and pencils.
