Cas trained in fine arts and works between the disciplines of painting, drawing and textiles. Salvaged materials are torn, cut and re-assembled to create mixed media pieces which draw their inspiration from 'hidden' or 'overlooked' observations of daily life.
She makes reference to the views from windows, the weeds and flora on the verges of roadsides and the places where our gardens meet the landscape. This relationship between 'Urban' and 'Nature' has been informed by stories of her Romany grandmother, old and forgotten textiles, and the natural cycle of growth, decay and renewal.
Working with 'stitch sketching', she seeks to capture a moment or thing before it is gone. Cas produces artworks for public and private spaces and is represented in major collections including Arts Council England, Museum of Art and Design New York and the Embroiderer's Guild.
