Casey grew up in Perth and took an interest in drawing from an early age. This continued with general art classes at school and was followed by an Advanced Diploma of Live Production (Props and Scenery) majoring in Scenic Painting from the WA Academy of Performing Arts. The time spent working in a theatre setting greatly influenced Casey’s work and the drama created by sets and lighting is apparent in her artwork. Casey has also spent time as a Scenic Artist for Perth theatres such as His Majesty’s Theatre, and as an artist and props maker for Perth’s Artrage Festival, TV commercials and film, and murals for private companies. It was also around this time that Casey took an interest in street art. During a ten year period spent living and working in Sydney and Canberra, Casey completed an Interior Architecture degree at Curtin University and the University of Canberra.
Casey held her first solo exhibition in Sydney in 2009, showing a series of figurative charcoal drawings and mixed media paintings which were manipulated through the use of shading in order to create a feeling of reflection and contemplation –a common thread running through Casey’s figurative as well as abstract work. In the same year, Casey won an art competition (painting category) run by a Sydney magazine for her painting ‘Constance’, inspired by D.H. Lawrence’s ‘Lady Chatterley’s Lover’. This followed with exhibitions and commissions in Darwin and Perth. Casey is also passionate about placemaking having held a research role for local Government in Darwin on how they can apply placemaking and Universal Design principles to policy and planning.
Since moving back to Perth after being away for thirteen years, Casey is currently creating in the form of fashion photography and styling, graphic design and exhibiting in public spaces, currently her favourite gallery space.
