Elements of Crystal's works defer to her surroundings and her observations growing up in country Victoria with her parents who are both acclaimed wildlife artists.
In her artist statement Crystal refers to The Egg as "representing the fragile natural world. Human hands and egg cups hold eggs, depicting a strained relationship where nature is forced to conform.
In contrast, the female figure embraces the egg and reflects a protective and nurturing relationship.
Images of endangered birds and feathers symbolise the existence of life. Human Nature aims to open the viewer's eyes to our natural world."
