Welcome to my art portfolio, art tips, poetry and print shop!
My name is Karin but I prefer Cass or Cassidy.

To touch a heart, to spin a dream, to share a thought, a love, a special memory, these are the things that make life meaningful.

I create nostalgic designs to give a sense of harmony. May Gibbs, Holly Hobbie and Margaret Keane are strong influences from childhood.

About
As a child I loved fantasy illustrations I found comforting, and that took me on imaginary journeys and daydreams. I try to create art that has a similar effect on people.

Process
My paintings might appear at times simplistic, but come about through lots of processing, combining things I’ve seen and heard, stories and images. I often draw on paper first, painting in layers over the drawing in Procreate for iPad. Other times, I draw and paint straight onto my iPad without any drawing underneath.

Intention
In a timepoor world, my intention is to relieve tension and support a restive transcendent moment where peace is found.

Themes
Some of the themes that run through my work include friendship, love, connection, beauty, balance, wellbeing, motherhood, childhood, nature, meditation, mindfulness, Australian landscape, melancholia, peace, transcendence, happiness, motherhood and wildlife.

Hobbies
Beach walks give me lots of inspiration and perspective.

Inspiration
Nature, the ocean and good news stories

Ancestors
I’m descended from John Constable and John Milton.

Dream
To live in a lighthouse on a remote mountain, leading a simple life with my best friend Scott.

Influences
60’s and 70’s, Traditional costume, Tang and other Dynasties, Indigenous peoples, Society and culture, Human Stories, Behavioural Psychology, Philosophical Though, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, History, Vintage Poster art, Vintage Toys, Vintage clothes, Antiques, Ceramics, Round forms, The Australian Bush, Vast expanses of water, Flowing lines, Tranquility, Mindfulness, Meditation, Nature, Spirituality, Poetry, Music (folk, indie, classical), Tattoo Art, Contemporary Art, Abstract Art, Pop Surrealism, Portraiture, Realism, Artists throughout history
