Crumley's interest lies in creating expressive landscapes that capture the spirit and mood of a place. The mountains and lakes of Maine and memories of her travels are consistent sources of inspiration. But faithfully reproducing a specific location or exact color is not as important to Crumley as evoking an emotional response in the viewer. While she is an avid photographer and takes many reference photos, when Crumley paints a scene she freely change the light, color and physical layout to heighten the mood and create color tension. In the end, it all boils down to her love of color, and of nature, and the pure joy she get from sharing this in paint, pastels or inks.
