Crysta is a Seattle native but has spent most of her life in KC. She started drawing when she was four and never stopped, deciding early on that she wanted a career in the arts. She holds a Bachelor’s in Studio Art from UMKC and began working for KCUR as a freelance designer in 2017. Eventually brought on as a full time member of staff, her duties spread to include design and illustration for not just KCUR, but Classical KC as well. When not working on designs for either station, she can probably be found in her art studio painting or drawing up a new t-shirt design. She can be reached at email@example.com.
