Crystal Leach was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her work is inspired by the female form, nature, and pop culture. She began her artistic career using dollar store supplies to recreate images from her favourite comic books or movies. Learning how to tattoo in 2009 brought her to her true calling and she hasn’t looked back since!
In addition to human flesh, she also creates art with oil, acrylic, pencil crayon & graphite. For a period of time, she had moved to the Crowsnest Pass in Alberta, where she had a professional studio space at the Artist Collective Studio. Considering that tattoo work on human skin is a truly ephemeral canvas, she values her fine artwork as a method of preserving her ideas onto wood, canvas or paper.
