Fine Art Friends (part 4 of 4)

My final Fine Art Friend spotlight goes to Kasie Sallee . Kasie and I first met at an Ann Kullberg workshop and we instantly had the artist bond. Now our group of Fine Art Friends share the same bond and we wish someday to all get together to meet face-to-face.

Kasie is a very talented colored pencil artist who recently started working with acrylics. She uses her colored pencil style in creating her acrylic paintings. She has two beautiful daughters who often show up in her paintings. It’s fun to travel along with her on her motherhood journey.

Kasie’s style of painting reflects her memories of childhood story books. This painting is a classic example, Evie and Mr. Quackers Love to Swim . Too cute!

Kasie has also written a book Secrets of the Nylon Bowband. Sshhh….I think she has another book in the works…..

Her blog is full of inspiration that warms the soul. Her husband is very talented also. He runs and bicycles. Read up on some of his accomplishments here. He’s number one in their hearts too.

If you don’t have a group of artists to share with, I encourage you to find a group of local or online artists. They can inspire you and give you advice. Wetcanvas and Scribbletalk are good online resources for artists to share, laugh, and receive guidance along the way.
