Combining visual work and writing, Crowley’s work focuses on individual stories as inspiration for community engagement. She uses photography, writing, interviews (oral histories) as a subtle means to educate and transform preconceptions. Her training as a professional writer with her degrees in fine art and art history inform her artwork and her academic work.
