The small scale of my work allows me to create a relationship with the viewer that allows them to pause, get close, examine and embrace the subject at their own pace for that moment. I am predominantly inspired by traditional art practices and the work of the old masters, and enjoy incorporating contemporary imagery and work aesthetics to enhance my use of a traditional medium.” Cassie is based in Ring County Waterford and has participated in shows around Ireland, her work forms part of important corporate and private collections.
