Casey Watson

Casey Watson is a Toronto based mixed-media artist. She manipulates flat surfaces like paper as a sculptural medium. Her work incorporates bold forms with graphic textures, which are enhanced and vitalized through dynamic lighting. Interactivity has become increasingly important in recent work, allowing the viewer their own space on the canvas.

Likes: paper, typography, fashion, poodles, checkboxes, ice cream, scandinavian design, bird houses, indoor skydiving, tea and traveling

Dislikes: pickles
