Official Author Bio
Crystal Davis is an Australian author-poetess with a background in corporate project management and lifelong interest and participation in the arts; particularly dance, literature and acting. Recent television work includes commercials for the 2012 Olympics in London and a walk on part in HBO’s Game of Thrones (filmed in Belfast).
Crystal wrote her first book at age four, and her debut poetic collection Azure Assurances (illustrated by Canberra artist Kylie Fogarty) hit the shelves March 2014, successfully touring the country as both launch and exhibition. Her works are held in private collections globally.
In 2015 Crystal has published more than 20 poems and articles in various media, including a viral health piece for online publication Elephant Journal which received over 1.5 million views in a week.
As Creative Producer of the Nayri Niara Good Spirit Festival, Crystal has been welcomed into a traditionally closed Australian Aboriginal Community through her warm open hearted way of walking in the world.
Her largest and most ambitious undertaking yet, Project Curious, sees Crystal strapping her 100 year old typewriter to her back and travelling the world to experience 365 new things in 365 places, using only words as currency. This will include an arts residency in Campania, Italy and exhibitions in the RiCreare Arts Festival and Terra Vivente Studio.
Crystal has often been acknowledged for her philanthropic and creative work - featuring in The Age, SMH, The Mercury, The Advertiser, Melbourne Leader, WIN News to name a few.
