Thank you for your interest in my art! My name is Monica Cascio. I grew up in Houston, Texas and now reside north of Dallas in the lovely town of McKinney, Texas. I have practiced painting and drawing since I was a child.... it is my absolute passion!!! Self-taught from an early age.., I have over 30 years of personal art experience.
My primary medium of choice is oil painting on stretched cotton canvas. I love the organic flow of oils and the extra drying time they allow to let me play with fluid color combinations, built-up texturing and varying brushstrokes. I mix an abundance of color
combinations and techniques to accomplish the look and feel I want in
a particular painting. In all honesty, I never know at the beginning of a piece which direction I will go and what the final product of my chosen process will be. I suppose I enjoy living on the edge in an artist's world. It's always an amazing and fun journey no matter what path I end up taking and what the final result may be!
My modern representational pieces reflect my love of animals and landscapes and big beautiful skies. Luckily in Texas I am surrounded by all of these things... and I do believe this state offers some of the best sunsets and beautiful endless skies for inspiration. My additional love of traveling and photography help me focus on finding endless new subject matter and enables me to capture moments I can use for reference in creating many of my paintings.
I feel my painting process is unique and each piece I create is inspired by every aspect of life around me. My greatest joy as an artist is to be able to create a painting that will move the viewer and, perhaps, fill their home life & life space with color and,.. above all, create a deep individual attachment.
