Sizing and Price Examples:

This list is to give a general idea of the cost of commissioning a custom piece of artwork. I will give a more accurate estimate based on the exact size and complexity of the finished piece before beginning the commissioning process. 

The oil paintings I typically do are hyper-realistic and are made from observation (or a photograph if preferred by the client). Please take a look at the variety of work on my website – cassiemarie.com – to get an idea of the level of finish/style that I typically work in. I’m totally flexible though, and we can work together to create something catered to your preferences. We’ll work together to decide on a final mock-up for the painting before I start working on it so you’ll have a really good idea of how the painting will look when finished.

Artist Statement:

One of my earliest memories took place at my great-grandmother’s house. She had an entire wall filled with shelves of figurines. I was fascinated by these tiny porcelain objects that were strange and exaggerated versions of the animals they represented.  My family relocated often throughout my childhood and my possessions became a much-needed source of stability in my constantly shifting world. During this time, I began collecting my own small porcelain figurines at garage sales and secondhand shops that I frequented with my grandmother. I have always been interested in the past lives of these objects and would imagine what meanings and memories they held to those who had owned them.  

In recent years, this curiosity led me to begin using figurines as subjects for pieces that aren’t quite still-life paintings and aren’t quite portraits. The figurines I am most drawn to are strange, comical, and sometimes slightly discomforting. I spend a long time arranging the figurines and considering what meaning I’d like them to embody – sometimes this meaning is intensely personal, and at other times it is a universal experience.
