About the Artist

I love the smell of books; don't you?

Meet Kasey

Kasey is a photographer, artist, and writer working in the greater Fort Wayne area. Her photographic style is documentary with emphasis on the authentic, in-between moments that may have been otherwise overlooked.

After pursuing different interest and ultimately returning to her original calling in the art world, Kasey graduated magna cum laude in 2012 from the University of Saint Francis and received a BA in Studio Art with her Concentration in Photography and minor in Art History. She took time off to begin her family, giving birth to two boys in 2012 and 2014. Kasey will finish her Master’s degree in Studio Art, with a Concentration in Photography and minor in Painting, in the spring of 2017. Alongside her photography career, Kasey is also an exhibiting artist and the Marketing Specialist at the Garrett Museum of Art.

“If I could live in the darkroom, I would. I love film and old, alternative processes. It's these manual methods, having my hands in every single process from beginning to end, that have shaped me into the artist I am today. The fundamentals, the history, the beginning of photography are very important to me. This is just who I am. 

Art is who I am.

I believe that art imitates life and this is what I was born with; I am so grateful I get to share my heart with the world.”

I MAY NOT KNOW EVERYTHING, BUT THERE ARE A FEW THINGS I KNOW TO BE CERTAIN:
  • My two boys are my heart and soul.
  • I am explorer, wandering this earth and carving out my own path.
  • I love NPR, coffee, reading, painting, history, art, and science... and cake.
  • Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are my absolute favorite. 
  • I also love SweeTarts and Chewy Sprees... and coffee.
  • The darkroom is where I am truly at peace.
  • I am a painter (specifically abstract) and a writer (namely confessional poetry).
  • I am up for gaming at any time of day. No, really. We go to GenCon every year. /waves nerd flag proudly
  • Long live the Oxford Comma!
  • Organizing calms me.
  • I have a (bad?) habit of reading multiple books at once. I am currently in the middle of the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon and American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I can also be found reading poetry on any given day.
  • A few of my favorite shows are: Scandal (Olivia Pope is my spirit animal), OITNB (because, duh), Madam Secretary (I LOVE Tea Leoni something fierce), Jane the Virgin (currently binge watching during naptime), Property Brothers (or, let's be honest, anything on HGTV), and Outlander (Sam Heughan - enough said).
  • I am a serious introvert but I love cultivating deep connections with people.
  • Life is an adventure and photographs are our living stories. I couldn't imagine raising my babes without photo representation of our lives together. It's the small moments that make up our lives and we need to honor them.
