Krysta Bernhardt’s creative career has covered a wide range of artistic mediums and forms of expression. As a young person she studied everything artistic that she could get her hands on including visual arts, piano, oboe, voice, dance, theater, photography and more. Her varied interests led her from her hometown in upstate New York to Philadelphia where she graduated with honors with a BFA in Musical Theater from the University of the Arts. She has continued to paint, draw and create throughout her life. She is most inspired by the feelings and emotions that we all share, and the common experiences that bring us together as humans. She works in a variety of mediums to bring into visual form the inner, complicated parts of ourselves that are universal, but often difficult to express.
