Cassie Lawn Walker, a contemporary American artist, was born August 17, 1970 in Lewes, Delaware. Her first motivations to draw came from her mother, who often made sketches of the family horses on the farm where they lived.
After high school, Walker attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia, studying illustration and graphic design. She graduated in 1992, and worked for many years in Philadelphia, London, England and Los Angeles, as a designer and in off-hours developed her art, often working in oils.
By 2003, she began showing regularly throughout her home state. In 2006, Walker was awarded the Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Delaware Division of the Arts, as well as an honorable mention in 2011, both occasions granting her solo shows at the Division’s Mezzanine Gallery in Wilmington.
Walker has experimented with many different styles from abstract expressionism to rural scenes with a Van Gogh-like edging to pop surrealism, wildlife and figures in pencil, oil, watercolor crayon, and brushed-on acrylic with some palette knife application. All of this has lead to a collage-like style.
She currently lives in southern Delaware with her husband, Jamie Walker, and their son, Riley.
