Casey Swingle, Point Arena, California Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement Born in the midwest near Chicago Casey can't remember a time that she didn't think of herself as an artist. With lots of encouragment from both her parents she attended a traditional art school, John Herron in the mid 1960's. There she developed her love of figure drawing. She moved to the SanFrancisco Bay Area in the late 1960's and continued her education there. She currently works and lives on the California coast three hours north of SanFrancisco. Mendocino County is her home.
