Crystal Beshara is an international, multi- award winning contemporary realist painter living in Eastern Ontario. In Ottawa she is represented by Wall Space Gallery and in Meaford ON by Craig Gallery.
She has been drawing and painting since childhood inspired by her rural upbringing in Eastern Ontario, Canada. Crystal moves easily between watercolour, oil and dry media. Her work is recognizable with it’s rich, earth toned palette and emotionally charged, rural narrative. She spent years as a child observing and quietly illustrating the life around her which has informed the accuracy of her anatomy in both her flora and fauna subject matter as well as her ability to capture expression and emotion in her portraits.
She holds a BFA in Studio and a Botanical Illustration diploma from the Society of Botanical Artists (UK). She has been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur and International Artist Magazine , CBC radio , CTV television and more. (Scroll down for more awards and recognition).
Crystal is also a regularly invited Juror & Arts Educator and offers painting workshops abroad (Santa Fe, Greece, Wyoming, Newfoundland, France, England and Mexico).
