Like most everyone, our July Featured Artist is fascinated by the human face.
Casie Warnke has been drawing, including portraits, since she was a kid. As she became older, she realized that she had a fascination for people’s faces. She believes that she can feel people’s energy and that the eyes are truly the windows to the soul. She feels someone’s emotions through their face, and transfers it through her hands and fingers onto paper. As she says, “It’s a beautiful thing.” She is amazed that her work makes people feel things as well.
Since her parents really wanted her to go to college, she went to art school because it was the only thing she could think of that she was interested in. While she developed her craft somewhat in school, it didn’t really blossom until she moved to Austin and immersed herself in artist communities. That’s when she finally realized that she had truly found her purpose and now, she’s happy that she continues to improve.
