Crystal Carey, Buffalo New York Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement I've been interested in the fine arts ever since I was a young child. At the age of 2 I started dancing and I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon. Dance and art have been a passion of mine my entire life. I was always eager to entertain people with my dancing or my artwork. Dance and art have been a creative outlet for me and have allowed me to express myself in the best way. Even though I no longer dance it has become a strong subject in my work.
Creativity is something I can't get enough of! I always knew I would go into the art industry and I'm so happy that I followed my dreams. I received a bachelors degree in Illustration in 2004. In 2006 I started my own design business Pink Shamrock Designs http://www.pinkshamrockdesigns.com. Pink Shamrock Designs specializes in unique T-Shirt and greeting card designs. Many of the designs are Buffalo NY, Irish and dance inspired. I have also done some free lance T-Shirt design work for Tony Walker Aussie T's. I am also currently working as a wedding photographer. I love to work in all forms of the art industry. Art is my way of life! I live for the motto "take your passion and make it happen!"
I live in Buffalo New York, born and raised. I love my city and where I'm from. I am proud to say I'm a Buffalonian! I'm also very proud of my Irish heritage. I'm married and have two pugs! My husband is my biggest fan and supporter. He has stood by me as I work and build my business. I absolutely love what I do for a living! I could not ask for anything more. It is a dream come true!
