Artist / Personal Statement
Crystal Neubauer is a Mixed Media Artist drawn to the broken, cast out, and overlooked items of the past. She sees beauty in the mundane, brings new life to forgotten objects, and finds the process of salvaging old materials and creating new art to be therapeutic and healing. As her work evolves, a more complete understanding of why she does what she does and chooses to use materials that others see as trash comes to light:

It's about seeing something beautiful in the discarded

About giving new life to what has been broken and cast out

It's about seeing worth in what has been deemed worthless

And value in the valueless

Ultimately it's about humanity

And redemption

And love

Hi Crystal!

Welcome to the CIVA Network!

One of the reasons I joined CIVA is to connect with like-minded people with a passion for the arts and how it can touch a person’s soul.

I took a peak at you portfolio and was inspired -- I want to start adding some mixed media work as I expand my portfolio.  I especially like "Auld Lang Syne" -- I'm kind of a texture freak. 

Here’s a link to my web page/portfolio at CIVA (

May the Lord anoint all your endeavors!
