Introduction
I have a passion for art, people & serving the Lord. Finding the deep creativity behind our amazing creator is a way that I can give back these gifts to Him. I hope that even my weaknesses can be transformed into beautiful expressions of peace, love & serving. I am constantly amazed by God's creativity in the world & the ability He has given me to uniquely express how I see it. I am a freelance, mixed media artist & a Dallas City Arts jury award winner.

How did you get your start on Etsy?
I got my start on Etsy recently, mainly because I have lots of people contacting me on my website and this is a great way for them to go to my "shop" and buy things online! I have been buying on Etsy for awhile now and am thrilled to have a shop of my own! Such a cool, creative place with so many fantastic people.

What does a typical day look like for you?
I am 5 months pregnant and have a 13 month old so my days look different every day! I do a lot of commission work in Dallas so I typically don't have much down time...I have a studio in our home so I usually get my work done while my little guy is sleeping!

If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?
If I could be anywhere in the world for one day I would choose to go to a beach in Italy with my husband and baby. I have never been and would absolutely love to!

What is your favorite Bible verse?
Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

What is your favorite Etsy item listing to feature?
I am not sure I could pick a favorite etsy item listing! I do so many different things! I love doing commission work, basically making whatever you want/need come to life!

I love the picture of Casey and her baby. So much love.

My favorite picture in her shop, although I love her technique on all, is this one.

For me, it represents the love of the Lord in our home - I am!

The crosses are nice too - the pink one the best by a very small margin!

Very nice to meet you Casey. I checked out your website and was enthralled by your work. My favorite in your shop is the one of the rocket: http://www.etsy.com/listing/45883054/16x20

I love the whimsy of it. And the red cross is the one I prefer.
Thank you for sharing with us and CK thank you for putting the article together!

I love the Texas flag as well (although, really, I love all her work!) I like the red cross.

Keep painting Casey--God has given you a wonderful gift.

Casey is such a gifted artist and we are lucky enough to have one of her paintings in our home already, a Texas flag! Love love the red cross, too! We can't wait to see what God has in store for her and her growing family! Congratulations!
