Crystal Beshara is a Canadian contemporary realist painter and proud two-time winner of the prestigious Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation prize. A self-taught realist, her childhood was spent drawing and observing life on a farm and the quiet, connective world in which she lived. Even after moving to Ottawa to receive her BFA in Studio, Crystal's strong rural narrative continued to play a huge role in her paintings. Her style is a juxtaposition of two worlds; her love of realism collides with her post-secondary studies creating expressive and emotionally charged works that have been collected by corporate, private, and commercial clients.

Crystal is a member of the National Guild of Realism, was the youngest elected fellow of The Ottawa Watercolour Society, and also holds a Botanical illustration diploma from the Society of Botanical Artists (UK). She has illustrated four published children's books, including her original story When I Visit the Farm, and has been featured in several local and national publications.
