Crystal Cawley is an artist who works with paper, textiles, collected objects, and re-purposed materials. Her work explores ideas of identity, time, and loss, and draws on various traditional skills like embroidery and letterpress printing. She prints and teaches at Wolfe Editions in Portland, Maine, a picturesque small city where she has her studio and walks every day. Crystal is also an artist member of Pickwick Independent Press, a bustling print collective above SPACE Gallery in downtown Portland. In her very limited spare time, she learns Tom Waits songs on her ukulele. She welcomes thoughtful questions and perceptive comments from persons interested in hearing more about her work as artist and teacher.
