Here’s a little bit about Chrystal
“My name is CHrystal Phegley, I live in Portland Oregon with my very loving and supportive husband Jordan and our teeny Chihuahua, LITTLE LULU. Little Lulu is the inspiration for all of my sweet and bashful characters and my husband (who is the bestest EVER!) is the one who encouraged me to share them with others. I never imagined I would have the opportunity to design stamps for my fellow crafters and feel very excited and privileged to be a part of the Stamping Bella community. Thank you Emily so so much for introducing me to the world of stamps.. I am loving it!!”
Is CHRYSTAL cute or what?
Let’s introduce JENNIFER from Studio Petite… Jennifer had a piece of art in her shop that struck me and I became OBSSESSED. As you all know, I have this “thing” for the movie “UP”.. I just loved that movie.. she represented the movie so brilliantly that I had to harass HER as well!! LOL. Her style is folkarty with whimsy.. sooo DEEEVINE!
Here’s a really meaningful bio written by Jen
“I’m a commercial freelance artist living and working in NYC.
My mom, grandfather, great grandmother and great uncle.. .artists. That’s just to name a few. You could say it’s definitely in my blood. I have yet to come across an artist who, like myself doesn’t claim they can’t remember a time they weren’t creating art. I was the little elementary girl calling the classmates “cheaters” who traced their Santa Claus handout and I was drawing Garfield from scratch (a mimicked masterpiece I am sure )
My mom is a cross stitch designer for Leisure Arts. My dad has his Master’s degree in English, minored in theatre, and plays a myriad of instruments. Creativity and lyrics housed my upbringing. I was lucky enough to have parents who full force understood and supported my less common and rational career path. Most of us artists find someone filling our ears with “I totally wanted to be an artist, but my parents insisted I get a “real job”. Well kids, this is mine. So thanks to mom and dad To quote Ricky Nelson, “you see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself.”
I grew up in Naples FL, the land of snow white beaches and winter sun. I also lived in Cleveland Ohio for several years, the land of changing weather from minute to minute. I now find myself living and working out of a studio apt. In Manhattan. That’s what inspired the name “Studio Petite”.
It’s through rich diversity and consistent creative vibe of NYC that I find myself stumbling upon and digesting a new inspiration daily. Other various sources of inspiration: talking to a friend or loved one, an animal, a song, a movie, a book, a show (concerts, TV, broadway), a fabric, nature and even other artists. I never know how a creation will end up. However, that’s the beautiful surprise of it all. Some of my favorite mediums include watercolor, acrylic, marker, pen and ink, pencil, and colored pencil. I also adore pretty paper for collage purposes.
In the past I’ve designed cross-stitch books for Leisure Arts. I’ve worked with both Porterfield’s Fine Art Licensing and Linda Mcdonald Inc. I designed the cover for “The Army Ground Forces Band”. I’ve also been published on various products in the giftware industry.
My goal and purpose for artistic breath is to pass the joy , inspiration, and positive thoughts I placed in to each unique piece on to someone else. Am I complex? Yes. Do I want to be the sullenly dark placed artist? No thank you. There’s enough of that to punt around.
Lastly, I’ll leave you with some things I’m made of; love, and that make my heart beat a happy little jingle:
Cats and Dogs- equally
Friends and Family- Wholeheartedly
Oversized Furniture- Largely
Creating- All of me
Cheers and blessings
