About Casey

Casey is a local artist known for creating bright, bold and humorous illustrations that reflect South Australian life in a way that brings a sense of fondness and nostalgia to some of our curiously iconic images and icons.

Winner of the 2018 Urban Cow Art Prize, and known for her ‘Shit Adelaide’ illustrations, Casey delivers a nostalgic pop culture experience based on life and culture in South Australia from past to present. Imagine Andy Warhol and The Simpsons joining forces and creating a snapshot of Adelaide – bold, bright illustrations of people, places, iconic products and buildings all bought together in a blend of kitsch playfulness.

Sh*tAdelaide 2018 Calendar and Colouring And Activity book illustrations by Casey were personally endorsed by Queen Anne ‘Willsy’ Wills, Peter Goers and Hugh Sheridan!

“We love the way that Casey showcases SA culture in a fresh, fun and supportive manner. Casey’s exhibition is so important and relevant as it breathes new life into and embraces our cultural icons for a new generation”
Polly Love, Robern Menz Managing Director

“At a time when news can be doom and gloom, Casey lifts spirits. She captures the kitsch elements of our past with sensitivity and humour. In a way, she reminds us of our youth – the things that unite us, and why we’re lucky to live in SA”
Katie Spain, author ‘Adelaide Central Market: Places, People and Recipes’

“It’s Casey’s willingness to experiment with ideas and forms of expression, and to create conversation and community through her joyful celebration of South Australian icons and identity that makes her work so distinctive and engaging”
Jade O’Donohue, Three D Radio
