About the Artist
Every painting is a journey.
Casey's work can be described as contemporary realism. Specializing in figurative and portrait oil painting, Casey was trained in classic/ traditional painting techniques in college, but pursued graphic design after graduation. Later, she went on to teach art at the elementary school level, where she continues today. She always painted commission portraits along the way, and out of the commission work, was born the excitement to paint people in a more expressive way. Capturing human complexity with strong color, texture and poses, her paintings evoke mood and feelings, a sense of drama. Every painting is a journey, and a reflection of contemporary culture, history, time and of course, people.
