CV

Kristal Peck is a native Oregonian who started drawing at a very young age. Her first memory of art is when she took her artwork to “Show & Tell” in fourth grade and it was promptly stolen by a classmate. She has since recovered from this traumatic event and graduated from Utah Valley University with her BFA in the Spring of 2016.

Kristal’s work has been exhibited throughout Utah, including the Woodbury Art Museum, Utah Valley University Library, AmBank in Orem, and the Health and Justice Building in Provo. She has been published numerous times in Touchstones Journal, of which she served as Art Director, and Warp and Weave Magazine. Her work is also in the permanent archives at Utah Valley University Library.
