For me, creating is a beautiful and meditative dance, one that weaves me gracefully through the tension of control and the softening of release. The flow of my artwork helps me better embrace the flow of my life. I’m never quite sure how a piece will end up. The paint is controllable only to a point and even when I love how things are progressing, the details may just drift right off the side during the drying process. So, I start again. Mixing, layering, dripping and dribbling. The ebb and flow of the art further refined and made beautiful with flame. Fire is my paintbrush and reminds me often that the fires I’m dealing with in life, are the ones that most refine and beautify me.
Casey was born and raised in beautiful Northern Ontario and currently resides in the charming village of Elora. She has been creating art and thinking outside the box for most of her life, but in 2015, to better process the heartbreak of her work with women experiencing homelessness and addictions, Casey chose to pursue art more seriously as a means of self-reflection and growth. Embracing the flow of her art, has allowed Casey to connect, accept and heal. Casey uses epoxy resin tinted with acrylics, oils, inks and pigments to create her work. Many of her pieces contain over four layers of tinted resin and take upwards of two weeks to complete. Her art is unique, vibrant and reveals a wonderful complexity and depth.
