Chrystal Chan was born and raised in Northern California. Being fascinated by the spiritual world since the age of seventeen, the majority of her works present subjects in metaphorical situations that are derived from visions, supernatural experiences, and beings. Each piece is connected to the supernatural, as it is received in vision or direct interaction with the spiritual dimension.

In March 2014, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that caused immense nerve and joint pain throughout the entire body. Symptoms were so severe that it was said she was to die in a year. Then, God intervened. He led her into a type of prayer and meditation that restored her health at immeasurable speed. He also outpoured an immense amount of supernatural experiences like trances where she would feel physical manifestations of the Holy Spirit such as heat, numbness, literal feeling of waves of love passing through her heart, angelic interactions, and interactions with Christ and God Himself. By March 2015, the doctors couldn't find a single trace of her illness. Since then, through God's grace, she has been able to heal others through prayer, at a ministry called Blue Canopy

Chrystal has shown in numerous galleries and publications internationally as well as composed music for a Sundance nominated short film. Notable galleries include CoproGallery, Dorothy Circus Gallery, and Last Rites Gallery. She was also awarded semifinalist for Bombay Sapphire Artisan 2016, "Best Adult Book Cover" from The Art Order and was an official selection of Spectrum 20 and 21.
