Hi, there, I’m Cassandra and I am a self-taught mixed media artist and mixed media just means using different mediums within your art. For me, I like paper, paste, paint and a few other things to create texture and interest. I have been a stay at home mom/homemaker for over twenty years. I live in North Carolina with my love of twenty-two years and our three dogs, Luke (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) Ella (Yellow Lab) and Levi (Golden Retriever). We have two sons who are in their twenties and we just had our first grandchild, Avery Grace.
My art journey began about seven years ago. My sons were teenagers and off living their lives so, that left me wondering what do I do with myself now. I used to make primitive art and primitive dolls when they were younger and then wanted something else. So, I started looking online and found ATC’s (artist trading cards) and then wanted to be able to give them away so I then found Enchanted Makeovers. I started sending them there with encouraging words to help the ladies who were on their new journey in life.
I like learning and exploring new things so then, I discovered mixed media art and fell in love with how I could make it look messy and if I made mistakes no one would know it was a mistake, it became a part of the art.
My art has been published in Somerset Studio Magazine and Stampers’ Sampler. My art is licensed with Sagebrush Fine Art and it can be locally found in Gigi’s Gallery in Statesville, NC.
I also do two-three art shows throughout the year.
