The House of Tia Crystal: An Artist I Want You to Know About!

I get alot of requests to post about this and that and I tend to be very selective about what I put in my blog.  This is the first time in It's Really Only a Purple World's history that I have decided to post about an artist that I really want my readers to check out!

Here are some examples of her work:

Are you loving this as much as I am right now?

I also found her bio very interesting as well. 

     "Tia Crystal has literally changed dark days to bright times with just a few strokes of a paint brush. The London-born Tia says she always had that artistic streak in her. It wasn’t a life her family really understood or supported. The mother of three only dipped into that distant but strong feeling a few times in her life working in interior design and cake decoration. Tia’s most trying struggles were with anorexia, bulimia, and battle of her own self worth. At 40 years old it all changed during a simple stroll on a street in Italy.

     Tia says she found a paint brush just laying there. She picked it up and excepted the moment as sign to finally pursue her long standing passion … fine art. In just a few years, Tia has completed more than 500 paintings that hang on walls across the continents; she is commissioned for private paintings, and has sold her work to a long list of the world’s elite. Her dramatic use of colors portrays Tia’s exuberance and love of life, a feeling she hopes those who collect her fine art consistently feel. She credits the pursuit of her passion, for turning the tables on her toughest times. Tia believes her life story and work support her philosophy, “art inspires the energy of the soul”.

The House of Tia Crystal

     The House of Tia Crystal recently opened in Boca Raton, Florida. The gallery’s main feature is the beautiful and unique paintings of artist Tia Crystal. Also on display are sculptures, jewelry, and clothing from around the world. Tia’s goal is to make sure her gallery is about more than just the fine art. She says The House of Tia Crystal is a spiritual sanctuary and comfortable setting for all. On a daily basis, The House of Tia Crystal hosts art inspired yoga classes, meditation sessions, storytelling through the arts, women’s support groups, and art lessons for children

Take a minute and check out some of the other paintings in her gallery...and if you live in Boca raton, Florida stop in and let me know what you found!
