The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

About Me

About Me:
~~My name is Kasie and I live in central Oklahoma. I'm a 31 year old Mom to 2 precious girls ages 10, and 6. I've been married to my best friend, Dustin, for 12 years. He's an amazing cyclist/duathlete and a member of Team Undiscovered Cycling. Together we reached one of our life dreams by opening our own business in March 2010; Daddy's Dent & Ding, Inc. We specialize in paintless dent repair and hail damage.
~~I'm an artist who works primarily in fluid acrylic on watercolor canvas. You can see my portfolio here. When I'm not coloring or painting, :) I enjoy taking family bike rides, reading, running, baking or just having fun with my two girls.
I'm passionately in love with my Saviour. His grace overwhelms me and I love to share that joy with others.

My happy little family.

About My Blog:
~~I named my blog "The Art of Life" for a couple of reasons.
First, I think life is an art. The ups and downs, joys and sorrows all come together to make a beautiful picture.
Second, it is my hope to use my artwork to remind others of the joys of everyday life. I hope that my artwork can be a glimpse of this "art of life."
~~It is also my hope that my blog will encourage others to use their creative gifts. We all have them, whether they are painting, writing, dancing, singing, etc. I want to encourage others, especially artist moms, to make that time to enjoy creating.

Hi Kasie,
I happened upon your site as I looked for artist moms like me. I am so impressed with your work and with the time you put into it regularly (I know, not as much as you would like, if you are like me...). I am a painter/sculptor mom of 4 (plus one on the way). I am trying to really find a way for my art to bring in income more regularly, but as I am sure you know it is a struggle. I love that your art is a reflection of your motherhood and your Christain beliefs. Mine centers on motherhood as well, and I love to depict motherhood with honor. What a gift it is. I love your quote about God being the artist. My son once told me, "Mom, you created me. Well, not really, got created me, you published me." Well, anyway, you are an inspiration. Keep up your lovely work and dedication to God, family and your gift.

I hope you are still moving forward with your art. I noticed your Etsy is not online currently. I really enjoyed finding your blog, as I am hoping to begin my own very soon. It helps to know all that is possible through blogging and through faith in spirit and self.
Thank you for your work.
