CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

A book of paintings was published in 1993 and has since sold out. He has produce five educational DVD’s, which include two Dvd’s filmed in Crete.

Kasey’s paintings have been offered as major prizes on popular quiz shows “Sale of the Century” and “The Price is Right” on Channel Nine.

He has held four Solo Exhibitions in London and has been represented in major art fairs in London, including “Olympia” 2002, where a record price of £18,000 was established for a major canvas.

His articles are regularly published in Australian Artist Magazine and International Artist.

Kasey has studied and painted in many countries including the UK, France, New Zealand, USA & Italy – particuarly Venice.. He still takes regular painting trips around Australia, as his love of the Australian bush is very much the source of his inspiration.

He was previously a regular lecturer at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, but now holds tutorials for Art Society members throughout Australia, and holds his own home tutorials for individuals in his studio. He also teaches art at the Fine Arts League of Asheville in the USA. He also judges art shows.

Kasey maintains his drawing skills by attending Life Drawing sessions on a regular basis.

Hobbies include, playing tennis, occasional fly fishing, collecting and “tasting” wine – (especially Shiraz) and viewing and collecting Fine art. He also likes to take advantage of the beautiful bush trails around his home in Berowra for the occasional stroll.

Kasey states: “My work is a direct influence of the impressionist style of painting with a direct hand-eye co-ordination in front of the subject trying to capture the subtleties of mood, light and atmosphere while always trying to avoid any formulation, sentimentality and cliche’, giving the individual viewer a unique visual experience every time.”

Kasey is a true artist, and does not betray his love of creativity. He is always drawn to particular subjects for the fleeting magic they hold at the time, and never only for a commercial benefit. But it is always a source of excitement when astute art lovers appreciate and value his work.
